Ecclesiastes 5 (KJV)

1 Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil.

Careful!  God cares more about you obeying his word, than you making financial contributions.  Are you there for spiritual food or for financial gain.  You can not buy God's love. ~ Karmen



2 Be not rash (thoughtless) with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty (careless)
 to utter (broadcast) any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.
3 For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool's voice is known by multitude of words.
4 When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer (delay it and) not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed.
5 Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay.

Be careful of the oaths you make with God.  Don't set them too high and keep them or don't vow an oath at all.  ~ Karmen



6 Suffer (handicap)  not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?



7 For in the multitude of dreams and many words there are also divers (much) vanities (pride): but fear thou God.



8 If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel (wonder) not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth (observes); and there be higher than they.
9 Moreover the profit of the earth is for all: the king himself is served by the field.


12 The sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he eat little or much: but the abundance of the rich will not suffer (sicken) him to sleep.



13 There is a sore evil which I have seen under the sun, namely, riches kept for the owners thereof to their hurt.
14 But those riches perish by evil travail (work): and he begetteth (brought forth) a son, and there is nothing in his hand.
15 As he came forth of his mother's womb, naked shall he return to go as he came, and shall take nothing of his labour, which he may carry away in his hand.




19 Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.
20 For he shall not much remember the days of his life; because God answereth him in the joy of his heart.
