Does greater personal wealth increase our sense of well-being? If not, why not, and why does real contentment elude us?
Contrary to our expectations, a higher salary does not make us much happier. We need to look to our family relationships, our friends and our communities for our well-being.
Today we live in an increasingly prosperous world, much of which enjoys unprecedented levels of affluence. But the environmental degradation has created its own social evils. And eating into the fabric of society like CANCER. The greatest challenge of affluence is to remember that it is God, rather than ourselves, who gives us the power to gain wealth. If we are not careful, affluence can easily become the slippery slope that leads to rejection of God.
