Money & Ambition

It is good to have money and the things that money can buy, but it is good, too, to check up once in awhile and make sure you haven’t lost the things that money can’t buy.George Horace Lorimer

Christianity is the foe not of ambition, but of wrong ambition; not of covetousness, but of the covetousness which is idolatry; not of discontent, but of contentment with what is inferior. Our difficulty is not in expecting too much of Christ, but in not asking enough. We are too easily satisfied with what is mediocre or unworthy. We are content with a measure of achievement, with limitations to our powers, which are far below the will of God for us.
— Robert Speer, Seeking the Mind of Christ
