In Ecclesiastes 4, verse 6 it says:
“Better to have one handful with quietness than two handfuls with hard work and chasing the wind.”
Less is more.
The five fingers when held like a fist mimic desires to hold intact which are considered essential. Literally, each finger can count a memory, a possession, an achievement or even a loved one that can fill a longing or need. Five is a good number that is easy to remember or easy to reciprocate.
In life, there is so much more, but a handful is sufficient motivation to feel content.
Why then do we seek for more?
