We may feel god-like when we win the argument, complete the project, win the race, or solve the problem, but our victories only give us a temporary sense of invincibility. So when those moments start to convince us that we are not just god-like, but divine, the teacher in Ecclesiastes makes it clear again in chapter 2:

“Then I considered all that my hands had done and the toil I had expended in doing it, and behold, all was vanity and a striving after wind, and there was nothing to be gained under the sun.” (2:11 ESV)
