Money – it’s something we cannot live without, if we want to keep a roof over our heads and food in our tummies, and if we want heating and lighting. We work extremely hard to get enough money just to survive these days!
The Bible (1 Timothy 6:10) says, “For the love of money is the root of all evil . . .” and when you think about it, it’s scary how true this is. How many crimes are committed daily by people greedy for more and more money? Further, how many innocent victims are injured or killed in the pursuit of this greed?
But there’s more than one way to hurt someone while coveting cash . . .
Ethan lounged in his penthouse surrounded by the best money could buy. Expensive antiques and original paintings by Monet graced the exquisitely decorated room. The view of Central Park and New York was breathtaking.
He clutched a hand-written note in his manicured fingers, his designer-clad legs tucked under him. A tear rolled down his face, one of many he’d shed since finding her letter.
Ethan couldn’t understand why she’d left. He gave her the best of everything – except his time. He was so busy adding to his extensive fortune he’d lost sight of what was really important. And now he’d lost her.
He recalled his mother’s advice: “Make time for love, my son, it’s the one thing money can’t buy.”
Now it was too late.
