The Freedom of Wealth--or What Wealth Means to Me

Written by Mary Wilkey

No, money cannot buy happinessóthat's true. But what is also true is that it sure does make life a whole lot easier to deal with.

The freedom of wealth means being:

*Free of any need for pretense (if we are who we claim to be, we need not pretend). I am who I am.

*Free ofrepparttar burden to carry cash, checks, or credit cards (our person is recognized and respected as having meansówe are free fromrepparttar 124054 burden of having to prove it.) I have what I have.

*Free to go anywhere or do anything lawful. I stand where I stand.

*Free from worry about provision. I have what I claim and claim what I have.

*Free fromrepparttar 124055 limitations of this world. I go where I go. I know what I know. I rest where I rest.

Everything is mine, because I remember all His benefits. I am who I am in Him.

To enjoy wealth, one has to be aware of it. (If we have millions in our account, but if we don't realize it because we are insane, we cannot enjoy it.)

It occurs to me that each of us fortunate enough to be in our right mind is independently wealthy. We have only to realize that wealth. Here I refer to that which transcends monetary wealth.
