In the book,
|What Would Jesus Do Today?|
Mike Cope and Rubel Shelly give us a great list of things money can and cannot provide in our lives. Here is the list:
One more trip to the mall cannot fix you. Money Can buy:
- A house, but not peace
- Medicine, but not health
- Amusement, but not joy
- Therapy, but not healing
- A bed, but not sleep
- Allies, but not friends
I love that list. At times I think we all misplace our expectations of money. Notice the internal issues that really add meaning cannot be touched by a magic wand. Those parts of us can only be healed by the One who created us.
