The Soul-Threatening Danger of Falling in Love with Money

The Soul-Threatening Danger of Falling in Love with Money

When I was in my late teens and early twenties, I wanted to be rich.  I thought that once I obtained wealth, I would be truly content and happy. I justified my desire in Christian circles with statements to myself like “I don’t want to be wealthy for myself.  I want it to share it with others.  I envisioned graduating from university in Calgary with a business degree.  Then I would get a job somewhere in downtown Calgary.  I would earn good money and get a big mansion and enjoy life.  Upon graduation, I couldn’t get a job in business.  It was a bad time in downtown Calgary for work.  So I continued my part time university job as a carpet cleaner until they laid me off.  Then I experienced unemployment for about 6 months and had to fill out those reports to the Employment Insurance people.
