The lover of money will not be satisfied with money; nor the lover of wealth, with gain. (Ecclesiastes 5:10 NRSV)
I don't think I have to tell you that money is not your most important investment. Some of you think it is. You think to yourself, when I have enough money put away, then I'll be able to enjoy life. Then I will be able to do the things that give me pleasure. Then I will be able to enjoy my family. If that is the way you think, and I have at times, chances are that day will never come. You had better find some enjoyment in life now. You had better enjoy your family now. Time is shorter than you think and time is far more precious than money. If you are selling your precious time and all you're getting back is money in return, you are wise.

In Gibran's small volume SAND AND FOAM there are two lovely lines:
They deem me mad because I will not sell my days for gold;
And I deem them mad because they think my days have a price.

Dear God, show me the road that leads to daily fulfillment of your love. Amen.
