Did They Say That? Money Can’t Buy

June 24, 2008

“If you want to feel rich, just count the things you have that money can’t buy.”

Unknown source

I love it! There are so many people in this world with tons of money, but still without satisfaction, without purpose, without happiness and without true friends. Just look at the prodigal son in the Bible. When he had money, he had “friends” who partied with him and spent his money for him. As soon as he ran out of money, his “friends” abandoned him.

It’s not about how many dollars you have that matters but how many friends you have who will stick with you through thick and thin. It’s about having a family that loves you for who you are regardless of meaningless numbers in a bank account. It’s about the treasures you can store in heaven. It’s about having a relationship with the most high God. What really matters in this life are the priceless things that money can’t buy.

Some people will sacrifice their health to gain wealth. And later they will have to sacrifice all of their wealth to try and regain their health. What’s really worth it? What really matters?
