Leaky Purse – Haggai 1:6

You have sowed much and brought in little; you eat without being satisfied; you drink without getting your fill; you clothe yourselves, but no one gets warm; and he who earns anything earns it for a leaky purse.  (The Jewish Study Bible (p. 1233). Oxford University Press. Kindle Edition)
