Feeling sorry for the super-rich

Jesus teaching to consider the ravens, the birds of the air, the lilies of the field confronts my fears about not having enough, losing what I have, or never attaining "financial security." If I could do it over I'd live more simply. Debt and stuff are nothing more than baggage. The best advice I can give someone just starting out is to pursue life as a raven. "Pefect love casts out fear."

Thank you for this honest and thought-provoking post. These issues balloon as one faces retirement. How much will be enough? Adequately prepared or not? I want to be financially secure enough never to be a burden to my children or anyone else (and I recognize how laughably prideful that is). Somehow, in this day and age, I doubt that my children will ever reach a level of financial security to be able to support me, anyway! Food for thought.

Recently I heard this from a pastor: Money can be a great tool, but it's always a terrible god.

Good post.
