but people do!
Many young people don’t understand that they cannot have what their parents have right now. It took their parents years to have a roomy house, or a second car, or a savings account. It’s not worth the sacrifice necessary to try to accumulate wealth. It’s truly
crazy unwise to exchange righteousness for things. They’ll never satisfy. If the Lord blesses you in years to come with any type of monetary wealth, there’s certainly nothing wrong with that – just use it for Him.
Here’s the perfect illustration of a man whose life wasn’t about things – but people –

At the foot of a tall tree in a small African village the natives dug a hole and placed in it the heart of this man who they loved and respected. If your heart were to be buried in the place you loved most during life, where would it be? In your pocketbook? In an appropriate space down at the office? Where is your heart?”
