Hard Work

Proverbs 13:11
Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labor shall increase.
Hard work never killed anyone! That’s an expression I remember hearing many times. The trouble is there are many get-rich-quick schemes out there to tempt us not to work, and more often than not they come to nothing. A few years ago several people invested heavily in a get-rich-quick scheme - and lost everything (tens of thousands of dollars) overnight. It’s much more honorable to work for what you have, rather than to get something for nothing.
