Ah, money. The grease that moves America. The love of which has perhaps caused more human anguish than perhaps any other object with the possible exception of abuse of the Bible, Torah or Koran by religious extremists.
Young people, in good health and on the move toward their apex of power, believe that money can buy anything and everything. How wrong they are!
It is true that with enough money one can buy politicians, prostitutes, mansions, social position, fine clothes, fancy cars, jewels, private jets, and the sybaritic life-style of the rich and famous.
The most important things in life MONEY CANT BUY!!! What are they?
1. Money cant buy happiness. All the money in the world cant make you happy. Happiness comes from God and from within ones inner soul. Some of the happiest persons I have every encountered were living in extreme poverty by traditional American standards.
2. Money cant buy health. All the money in the world cant undo the damage caused by smoking, drug abuse, cancer, sexual indiscretion, and a thousand other health problems which destroy ones quality of life. Of course, if you are rich enough you can buy a new kidney or heart. But what is kind of life does one have fighting AIDS, cancer, a dead liver, destroyed lungs or a brain tumor caused by saturating yourself with pesticides, herbicides and other life-destroying chemicals?
3. Money cant buy a ticket to heaven. In fact the worship of money and the making of money in unethical ways will buy a ticket to eternal damnation. Many of the great fortunes which have been made throughout history have been made from the destruction of Gods Creation or from taking unfair advantage of other people.
Money can buy food for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, and Wilderness Cathedrals which honor God and Creation. The positive use of money can bring pleasure to the lives of underprivileged children, provide shelter for abused pets, and provide a sanctuary for Gods animal children.
