George Horace Lorimer, long-time editor of Saturday Evening Post, once said, “It is a good thing to have money and the things that money can buy, but it is good, too, to check up once in a while and make sure you haven’t lost the things that money can’t buy.”


This made me take an inventory of the things I have that I could not buy, but certainly would not want to lose.


First, I would list all kinds of love. The greatest love is the love of a heavenly Father. It is free to us, but my life would be miserable without it.


Then would come the love of family and friends. This cannot be bought, but earned through caring and sharing together.


Next would be nature’s beauty--the golden daffodils, the sunrise that wakes me as it comes through my window, the birds I hear from my back porch, the breeze that causes a gentle tinkle of the wind chime, the brilliant hillside of autumn trees--these are all around me. I just need to enjoy them.


Peace of mind and clear conscience, health, freedom from oppression, the right to worship . . . my list is just beginning!


What about yours? Have you thought about your riches that money cannot buy?


I Timothy 6:17 has something to say about this:


Verse 17, Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment.
   Verse 18, Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others.
