Proverbs 23:4-5 Don’t Exhaust Yourself in Pursuit of Wealth

Don’t exhaust yourself in pursuit of wealth;
    be smart enough to desist.
If you make your eyes rush at it,
    it’s no longer there!
For wealth will surely grow wings,
    like an eagle flying off to the sky.


It makes me think that it is still wise to work because of passion (the love for the work), instead of working because of the love for the wealth the work brings.

It makes work enjoyable, worthwhile, and fulfilling; and its results creative, excellent, and just (fair).
