Ecclesiastes 5:10-12,18-20; 7:13-22

10. Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. This too is meaningless.
11. As goods increase, so do those who consume them. And what benefit are they to the owner except to feast his eyes on them?
12. The sleep of a laborer is sweet, whether he eats little or much, but the abundance of a rich man permits him no sleep.

18. Then I realized that it is good and proper for a man to eat and drink, and to find satisfaction in his toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given him--for this is his lot.
19. Moreover, when God gives any man wealth and possessions, and enables him to enjoy them, to accept his lot and be happy in his work--this is a gift of God.
20. He seldom reflects on the days of his life, because God keeps him occupied with gladness of heart.

13. Consider what God has done: Who can straighten what he has made crooked?
14. When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider: God has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, a man cannot discover anything about his future.
15. In this meaningless life of mine I have seen both of these: a righteous man perishing in his righteousness, and a wicked man living long in his wickedness.
16. Do not be overrighteous, neither be overwise-- why destroy yourself?
17. Do not be overwicked, and do not be a fool-- why die before your time?
18. It is good to grasp the one and not let go of the other. The man who fears God will avoid all [extremes].
19. Wisdom makes one wise man more powerful than ten rulers in a city.
20. There is not a righteous man on earth who does what is right and never sins.
21. Do not pay attention to every word people say, or you may hear your servant cursing you--
22. for you know in your heart that many times you yourself have cursed others.

Philippians 3:7-9

7. But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.
8. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ
9. and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ--the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith.
