Ecclesiastes 4:6 Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit.
Most of us think that if we had lots of money we would enjoy peace. Solomon who was extremely rich said that wasn’t the case. If you have lots of money you just might be worried about all your stuff too much to enjoy it.
It would be better to have less and enjoy it in tranquility than to have so much that it keeps you worried. Is the market up or down? Are the thieves coming to get my stuff? Do I have enough insurance?
I have to learn to trust God. I need to see my money and my stuff only as tools to be used for His honor and glory. We never trust our stuff. We do not want to love our stuff. If we keep Him as our focus then we can live in quietness and peace knowing that He will take care of us and do the best for us, even if that means losing stuff but not Him!
