After experiencing the pleasures that come with wealth, he came to a conclusion…
This is an account given by someone who had his clothes compared to lilies in a field by the Lord Jesus Himself. We are talking about the richest human that has ever lived.
Having experienced all the pleasures that come with wealth, King Solomon came to the following conclusion:
“He who loves silver will not be satisfied with silver; Nor he who loves abundance, with increase. This also is vanity.” Ecclesiastes 5:10
“The sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he eats little or much; But the abundance of the rich will not permit him to sleep.” Ecclesiastes 5:12
“As he came from his mother’s womb, naked shall he return, to go as he came; And he shall take nothing from his labour which he may carry away in his hand. And this also is a severe evil – just exactly as he came, so shall he go. And what profit has he who has laboured for the wind?” Ecclesiastes 5:15-16
This is a great lesson to those who think that wealth can buy a good night’s sleep, peace, a united family or, above all, salvation! Therefore, what makes these things possible is the sincere surrender of one’s soul to the Lord Jesus, so that they may receive the greatest treasure that a person can have – even if they are “poor”, which is the baptism in the Holy Spirit and spending eternity with the Most High.
