Can Money Buy Happiness?

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.
