The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.
– Proverbs 10:22
Labor without or apart from Divine blessing might lead to multiplied possessions, but it will not be without sorrow admixed (Proverbs 13:11; 15:6). There is a certain futility in all such labor, no matter the short-term gains (Psalm 127:1-3). When the Lord blesses wise, diligent labor, the increase is a blessing with joy (Ecclesiastes 5:19).
