Money And Contentment? Testimonies…

No amount of money will make up for a lack of contentment.  Think… ponder… reflect… meditate…

John D. Rockefeller once said, “I have made many millions, but they have brought me no happiness.”  He also said, “The poorest man I know is the man who has nothing but money.”

Cornelius Vanderbilt added, “The care of millions is too great a load . . . there is no pleasure in it.”

Millionaire John Jacob Astor described himself as “the most miserable man on earth.”

Despite his wealth, Henry Ford once remarked, “I was happier doing mechanic’s work.”

C.S. Lewis once commented, “He who has God and everything else has no more than he who only has God.”

John Piper recently tweeted, “The millionaire who feels superior to the poor Christian does not grasp that the Christian inherits everything” 1 Corinthians 3:21.

Paul said, “If we have food and clothing, with these we will be content” (1 Timothy 6:8).

It is recorded that Jesus said, “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money” (Matthew 6:24).
