The Danger of Wealth

We shape our dwellings, and afterwards our dwellings shape us. (Winston Churchill. British prime minister)

Is it possible that we could become so enamored with our houses that we begin to emulate them? If we built the bare minimum, could we somehow live that frugally? Or, if we really enlarged our dwelling and furnished it to the max, we would surely be living in an ostentatious way. But. remember what happened to the rich man in the Bible that kept expanding his property. 

“I’ll tear down my barns and build bigger ones.” “You fool! You will die this very night. Then who will get everything you worked for? Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.” (Luke 12:18, 20-21)
