Two ways that money can control us.

I've been thinking a lot lately about money, often due to my lack of it (well for the society I live in anyway, not really on a worldwide scale) and the influence it can have on our lives.

I hear a lot of Christians trout on about how we all have too much money (agreed) and that we should all be poor (not so sure).

It's easy to see how having too much money can really easily consume our life, its all we live for, we work too hard and too long at the expense of other more important matters, and we just get greedy, always wanting more.

But the flipside of that is that when you don't have any money, it can very easily consume all of our time and efforts worrying about it, stressing about how we'll be able to pay the bills etc etc.

My only financial goal in life is to be in a position where I'm financially stable, just so that worrying about money isn't my main concern, that it doesn't fill my life. But I think to get there I need to stop doing so much volunteer work!
