America has an abundance of wealth in nearly every form. I can't help but be disgusted when I see the billions upon billions of dollars that are spent on making the American people forever in a cycle of dissatisfaction. One of the biggest lies of our culture is that your success and quality of life is in direct relation with your money. Since America thrives off of this deceit we have the natural temptation to continuously "build bigger and better barns" within our lives.
Jesus has called us to something better.
There is a quality of life that is obtained when you have an abundance, and you give it away.
Your quality of life does not consist in the abundance of your stuff.
