This is interesting..real..and so true for many.

What Can Money Buy?
   “For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption” (Gal. 6:8). When a person gives himself to the world and sows for worldly gain, his harvest can be money, affluence, success, pleasure, and freedom from hunger, from cold, and from heat. In many ways he can find a harvest that is seemingly grand. But Paul says that there is also another harvest in it, and that harvest is corruption, decay, and loss. The apostle says that there are no spiritual rewards or harvests when a person sows just for the world.
   For example, money can buy a bed, but not sleep. Money can buy food, but not appetite. Money can buy a house, but not a home. Money can buy medicine, but not health. Money can buy amusement and pleasure, but not happiness. Money can buy gifts, but not love. Money can buy a crucifix, but not a Savior. When we sow for worldly gain, then the harvest is corruption, loss, and decay.
   Two men were driving through a beautiful estate crowned by a lovely mansion, with fertile fields all around it. The man asked his companion, “What is the value of this great estate?” His friend replied, “I cannot tell you the value of it, but I can tell you what it cost the owner.” The other fellow said, “What?” And he replied, “It cost him everything he had. It cost him his soul.”
As I read this I thought of Matthew 16:26.
For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul?  Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
In His grasp forever!  Marge H.
