Consumed by Accumulation

Proverbs 23:4Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint. (NIV 1984)

My Musings – We often wear ourselves out accumulating things to own, only to find out that they own us.

My Advice – There is nothing wrong with wanting to get ahead, as long as it does not consume us. It is foolish to pursue wealth to such an extent that we do not have time to enjoy it, enjoy our friends and enjoy our life.
