Dr. Louis Binstock, a Jewish Rabbi, and author of the book, The Power of Faith, said, “when all is said and done, success without happiness is the worst kind of failure”.

So, be careful who you call successful because of fame and fortune.

More Hollywood celebrities have committed suicide than those living in beggar communities.

Google ‘List of Countries by Suicide Rate’ and shockingly you will find the richest countries at the top and the poorest countries at the bottom.

Wealth is good, but contentment is better.

Solomon, probably the richest and wisest man ever, other than Yeshu’a said, “give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread”.

You may ask, ‘how will God give me my daily bread’?

Solomon answered this question. He said “to the person who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, 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.

Just learn to please God and leave the rest to Him.
