I feel sorry for people whose life is wrapped up with money. They spend the first half of their lives trying to take it away from other people, and the last half of their lives trying to keep everybody else from taking it away from them. Then they come to the end and give it to people who quickly spend it, or lose it.
I’m not saying that money is unimportant. You have to have money to take care of your family and survive in life. There are things you have to possess which can only be purchased with money: food, clothing, housing, transportation, health care.
But making money should not be our first priority, and it should not be how we keep score or value people. You should not decide on a profession based on how much it pays.
If you make a lot of money, good. But don’t forget that we are blessed to be a blessing.
