A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE – “Wealth Doesn’t Bring Happiness”

The Master's Table

“The blessing of the LORD brings wealth, without painful toil for it.” (Proverbs 10:22 NIV)

“God gives some people wealth, possessions and honor, so that they lack nothing their hearts desire, but God does not grant them the ability to enjoy them, and strangers enjoy them instead. This is meaningless, a grievous evil.” (Ecclesiastes 6:2 NIV)


While praying for wealth, pray that God grants you the ability, life, health, strength and sense to enjoy it and the gratefulness to joyfully share, invest and give some of it into the lives of others for God Loves a cheerful giver.


Without God’s favor, grace and mercy, wealth is joyless and unfulfilling. Wealth does not empower us to enjoy it.  Being wealthy alone will not make one happy or fulfilled. Wealth alone cannot cure depression, loneliness, low self-esteem or that gnawing feeling inside of being empty.


“To the person who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness (The power to enjoy wealth), but to the sinner he gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God.” (Ecclesiastes 2:26)
