STOP AND THINK – When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost. (Billy Graham, American evangelist)
Wealth—money, property, possessions—are temporary, so to lose them, while painful, should not permanently affect the loser. When we lose our health, however, it may leave us with lifelong disability. But, as Graham suggests, when we lose character, or integrity, we have lost something of incalculable value. Protect your integrity above all.
[Jesus] said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.” (Luke 12:15)
