Looking Back - Money

"Poor people are as much in danger from inordinate desire toward the wealth of the world as the rich from an inordinate delight in it."

~ Matthew Henry

"Money is in truth one of the most unsatisfying of possessions. It takes away some cares, no doubt; but it brings with it quite as many cares as it takes away. There is the trouble in the getting of it. There is anxiety in the keeping of it. There are temptations in the use of it. There is guilt in the abuse of it. There is sorrow in the losing of it. There is perplexity in the disposing of it."

~ J. C. Ryle

"God gave us wealth, not that we should be hoarders but dispensers."

~ Thomas Manton
