Notwithstanding, King Solomon according to the Holy Scriptures who was the wealthiest person ever based on the standards of this world (2 Chronicles 1:7–12) asked: “What [PROFIT] hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?” (Ecclesiastes 1:3).

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that [WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE]. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. [HE THAT BELIEVETH ON HIM IS NOT CONDEMNED]: but [HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY], because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18).
JESUS CHRIST, THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD who had no wealth and riches when he was here on earth expressed about wealth and riches when he drew an example using King Solomon, saying:
“Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment?
