Definition of the word Profit: A valuable return, gain a profit. over cost, dividend on your return.
Ecclesiastes chapter 1 - 3 : What profit hath a man of all his labour, which he taketh under the sun.
Proverbs chapter 10- 2: Treasures, of wickedness profit nothing, but righteousness deliverth from death.
Ecclesiastes chapter 5 -16 : And also is a sore evil .that in all points as he came, so shall he go: and what profit hath he that hath laboured for the wind.

Galatians chapter 5 -2 : Behold I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
The word for today is profit; we all look for profits on investment returns, or wework for profits on a job. This world is all about profit of one thing or another; the bible ask the question what shall it profit a man, to gain the whole world and lose his soul?, the soul is a very important of us, I think we all need to answer this question. If we win the lottery, and have money to burn, but doesn't have charity, we're no good to mankind or ourselves. In case we don't know what charity is; It's giving and being generous with your money. I guess when the bible ask the question; it was talking about the greed of man kind, we have to keep getting more and more money, becuase we never have enough.
Some of us appears to have more than enough money, but we never share it with the poor or needy. We can lose our souls,by becoming obsessed with getting more money and profiting in ways that's not godly. we shouldn't become obsessed with becoming rich by profiting from others financial lost. The truth is, our souls are more important than any profit gain, we can come up with. Our souls are precious and priceless; and money can't buy them.
