We like to compare the toys we have in our garage, shed, or at our beach or mountain home. A common phrase is, “He who dies with the most toys wins.”

I know when I was in full-time law practice, I knew lots of lawyers who loved talking about their ‘measure in life,’ which usually meant money. But a lot of them had poor health, failing marriages, rebellious kids, etc. It’s all about how we choose to measure things.

True wealth flows from ideas and imaginations that capture vision, regardless of the amount of money they produce. Most people say wealth is acquiring things, but true wealth is more about learning to be content, and not striving to always acquire more.

Spiritually Speaking

Prosperity and health are a measure of wealth today. Staying fit and healthy is actually a good measure of true wealth.

Many folks are familiar with the verse in the New Testament that talks about God wanting us
(1) to prosper, and
(2) be in health
to the degree that our soul prospers.
