I closed last week’s article by saying that we put too much emphasis on material things such as money and cars and houses and land. I think that a further explanation is in order.
What’s wrong with having a healthy bank account? Or a nice, late model car? Or, a modern, convenient home? Or, a picturesque farm with a white fence? Nothing! Because we are taught in the Bible to be industrious, saving, and to care for our families and our fellow man. Orneriness and laziness are eschewed!
