For the majority in an affluent country like Australia, most of our struggles come from selfish living and broken relationships.
If your problem is loneliness; money won’t change you. If your problem is meanness and aggressiveness towards others; money won’t change you. If your problem is lack of a loving heart; money won’t change you. If your problem is injustice, greed, anger, blindness towards the tender needs of others; money won’t change you. In fact, increased wealth, if anything, seems to have undermined our humanity in western society.
The changes which make for peace, joy, love and true compassion don’t come with prosperity. Money won’t change you, but many of us have found that what money can’t buy, faith in Christ can provide.
