Context: In chapter 5, Solomon looks at religions and wealth. Worshipping the true Lord is not like worshiping false gods. False gods demand rituals. The Lord does not. The Lord demands that we worship Him and Him alone. Our God is not false. What we say, what we promise to Him, He expects us to fulfill. Solomon fails to find satisfaction in wealth in riches. We always want more than what we have and too often, people are driven to work to achieve more and more wealth, but to what end if we are never satisfied? When we die, we cannot take our riches with us.
