"A faithful man will abound with blessings,
but he who hastens to be rich will not go
(Proverbs 28:20 RSV)

Years ago a man came into the shop in his pickup
for something.  I would guess that the man was in 
his "fifties", a mature man.

The man was a machinist by trade.  And he explained
to me that he always went to the area that paid the 
highest wages in his trade.

He told me his wife had gotten tired of moving all
the time, so she was not with him.  All so, that every 
thing he owned was in the pickup.
So much for top pay.

You see it in the news all the time just like I do.
Some sports figure or celebrity who was worth
millions is now bankrupt.

"A miserly man hastens after wealth,
and does not know that want will
come upon him."
(Proverbs 28:22 RSV)

"The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance,
but every one who is hasty comes only to want."
(Provers 21:5 RSV)
