Quoteboard: Used, Not Collected
"Earthly goods are given to be used, not to be collected."
I often worry about having enough for tomorrow, next year, or in retirement. How much is enough?
I am in favor of prudent planning. But I have often found that accumulated wealth can be a barrier with God. Hoarding is idolatry. In our treasure, we too often find our security, trust, and consolation.
What good are my goods if they are only stored? Aren't they given to me so that I can give them away? Do I see my blessings like a classic car that is stored but never driven? Or do I put my blessings to work? "Earthly goods are given to be used, not collected."

I find myself also mulling over these questions. Good food for thought.
