Good Use

Today's reading: Ecclesiastes 6:1-12

Solomon continues his observations on money and wealth in Ecclesiastes 6, and his remarks contained some good and helpful reminders. First, that everything we have has been given to us by God, and second, that God wants and expects us to use what He has given us for good. When our eyes and hearts are set on God, using our resources to do good--to provide for our family, to help those in need, to spread the Gospel message and disciple others—is a response that comes naturally. But when our eyes are set on earthly treasures (things under the sun) and we obsess over money—being stingy, acting greedily, hoarding our possessions—our efforts and striving are for naught. As Solomon puts it, "This is vanity, it is a grievous evil" (vs. 2).
