    Ecclesiastes 2:4. Solomon is speaking, ''I undertook great projects: I built houses for myself and planted vineyards. I made gardens and parks and planted all kinds of fruit trees in them. I made reservoirs to water groves of flourishing trees. I bought male and female slaves and had other slaves who were born in my house. I also owned more herds and flocks than anyone in Jerusalem before me. I amassed silver and gold for myself, and the treasure of kings and provinces. I acquired men and women singers, and a harem as well--the delights of the heart of man. I became greater by far than anyone in Jerusalem before me. In all this my wisdom stayed with me. I denied myself nothing my eyes desired; I refused my heart no pleasure. My heart took delight in all my work, and this was the reward for all my labor.
     
    Proverbs 3:9 ''Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.''
     
    I. Discipline Yourself To Share
     
    ''You can not ultimately keep what is given to you to use for awhile.'' Ecclesiastes 5:13-15, ''I have seen a grievous evil under the sun: wealth hoarded to the harm of its owner, or wealth lost through some misfortune, so that when he has a son there is nothing left for him. Naked a man comes from his mother's womb, and as he comes so he departs. He takes nothing from his labor that he can carry in his hand.''
     
    Proverbs 28:27 ''He who gives to the poor will lack nothing, but he who closes his eyes to them receives many curses.''
     
    II. Wealth Does Not Make You Happy
     
    Ecclesiastes 5:10, ''Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. This too is meaningless.''
     
    III. Scripture Teaches Us To Work For Our Wealth
     
    Proverbs 21:20 ''In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has.''
     
    IV. We Are To Send Investments Ahead
    2 Corinthians 8:5: ''And they did not do as we expected, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then to us in keeping with God's will.''
     
    Matthew 6:20 ''. . . Store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.''
