-Noah Webster: Superfluities-
I have seen a grievous evil under the sun: wealth hoarded to the harm of its owners. Ecclesiastes 5:13
“Among the superfluities of life, we seldom number the abundance of money.”
Noah Webster (1758-1843) in Day’s Collacon, compiled and arranged by Edward Parsons Day (New York: IPPO, 1884) 912.
Short and sweet. That’s what the meditations will be this week as Sammy and I are heading West to Oregon for a week of fly fishing together. I located short quotes worth contemplating and sharing that use my word or 2018, abundance .
Noah Webster uses an uncommon word, superfluities. He defines it as “excess or oversupply.” He’s saying that most people would probably say you can’t get enough money. Is that the view we should take? Solomon teaches us otherwise.
As the famous song goes, money can’t buy you love or anything else you need. So, has God blessed you financially? Don’t let it stay with you to your ruin. You have been blessed to be a blessing. Be generous with it.
