    i dislike money strongly and i am not sure what to do about that; i have no desire for it because i think it would or will corrupt me, so i stay away from it, but i realize that in our world that there seems to be a requirement for it in order to buy materials that people may require
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Check out the 'minimalist movement.' There are people living lifestyles that are no longer centered around material gain. Of course you need to put food on the table and a safe place to stay, but there are plenty of like minded people, including Christians, who are living differently with a different perspective on stuff, since life is so short you know.

    Just stay out of debt if you can and you willl be richer than most.

    That's true, I guess with our nice weather here in Southern California clothes are not an necessity.
    But, in snow country they come in handy.

    Sorry about that -- on a serious note.
    I have known many who thought as you do when they were young. They never seemed to care about money or their future. They wish now that they would have worked harder and saved for their retirement years.

    Don't let it come back to bite you in the end.

    The Bible supports those that believe in
    hard earned money.

    It's the love of money that is a problem. We are in the world, so money is essential. One way to break its hold is to give as much as you can. Then it becomes a blessing, not a curse.

    I think that I would add food in there?

    I've got some friends that thought as you do when they were young. Now older they don't have many of the comforts of life. Many wish that they would have hit it a little harder and saved for their retirement.

    With a decent income retirement is sweet.
