Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies have no sense. – Proverbs 12:11

Some places where this is discussed in Proverbs:

Proverbs 14:23, 28:19

Get-rich-quick schemes are so often dependent on the person being so invested no good sense will give them pause. So often it’s just not worth it; the risk is too great. A steady job is much more worthwhile, and while the dividends may be small in comparison to the promised wealth of a scheme, it is the wiser option. May we be diligent in our steady work and not chase fantasies.
