What Money Can Buy

I came across a little card tucked away in my Bible that had a reminder about money. Lately, I have been hearing many people crying for the need for more money in their lives for whatever reason. We all need money to some extent...and some days more than others.  The desire to be flush with cash so that you do not have to worry about those days when the bills pile up floods everyone's minds now and then, but we need to remember...

Money will buy:
A bed BUT NOT sleep.
A steak BUT NOT an appetite.
Books BUT NOT wisdom.
Finery BUT NOT a sunset.
A house BUT NOT a home.
Medicine BUT NOT health.
Luxuries BUT NOT peace.
Amusement BUT NOT joy.
A crucifix BUT NOT salvation.
A church pew BUT NOT heaven.

If our greatest need had been information, God would have sent us an educator.
If our greatest need had been technology, God would have sent us a scientist.
If our greatest need had beeen pleasure, God would have sent us an entertainer...
But our greatest need was forgiveness, so God sent us a Saviour.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.~John 3:16

Do not let money rule your heart and mind. Regardless of how much money you do or do not have, keep your focus on what is really important in this lifetime...relationship - then you will never be poor.
