Ecclesiastes 10 (KJV)

1 Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary (pharmacy) to send forth a stinking savour (sour smell) : so doth a little folly (stupidity, madness) him that is in reputation for wisdom and honour.

2 A wise man's heart is at his right hand; but a fool's heart at his left.
3 Yea also, when he that is a fool walketh by the way, his wisdom faileth him, and he saith to every one that he is a fool.

4 If the spirit of the ruler rise up against thee, leave not thy place; for yielding (humbleness) pacifieth (makes peace for) great offences.

12 The words of a wise man's mouth are gracious; but the lips of a fool will swallow up himself.

14 A fool also is full of words: a man cannot tell what shall be; and what shall be after him, who can tell him?

19 A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things.

Sometimes scriptures are shared to give knowledge or insight.  With this one, King Solomon is referring to what matters in this world.  Celebrations usually involve food and entertainment.  Also, to really enjoy the festivities people offer alcoholic beverages.  With those two it's specifically for enjoyment.  It can not offer much more.  Money on the other hand can do so much more than entertain.  It pays the bills, etc.; it relieves debt which brings peace. You can't go very far in this world without money.  Far, in the sense of success and having access to things you would not have without it.   Money gives people the ability to control and have power.  Even over others.   This is simply dropping knowledge. Of course it will be misinterpreted and twisted to fit Satan's followers and mislead the lost.   This scripture is simple, it is not condoning the love of money it is simply providing insight ~ Karmen

20 Curse not the king, no not in thy thought; and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter.

Don't gossip.  Even if it's the truth.  Don't share your inner most thoughts aloud because someone around may hear it and spread the news.  ~  Karmen
