Ecclesiastes (6)

Many people today worship their money. In our Bible reading, the writer of Ecclesiastes looks at what people think about money and wealth.
People think that wealth gives them satisfaction. But the writer says that “those who love wealth will not be satisfied when they get more and more” (verse 10b). Many people also think that money will solve all their problems. But really having a lot of money only makes new problems for us.
Some people believe that wealth gives them peace of mind. But we can think about many people whose lives have been ruined by their wealth. Finally, the writer says that people think that money gives them security. But bad things can happen and cause us to lose our money.
We all need money to live, but it cannot bring us true happiness. True happiness can only come from a close relationship with God. Are you close to Him today?
