"Don't wear yourself out trying to get rich.
Be wise enough to know when to quit.
In the blink of an eye wealth disappears,
for it will sprout wings
and fly away like an eagle."
How straightforward these verses are! How true, too—riches can take wing so quickly. Taxes can eat away at the nest egg, or an unexpected repair or medical bill can demolish your savings. What's the answer? The issue here seems to be restraint. If you trust in God to take care of your needs, you can find balance. You can take time for rest and recreation. Work hard—but don't wear yourself out trying to get rich. Work hard—but know when to quit. Trust the ultimate source of your provision: God.
