There are many people in the world who believe that all their problems would be solved if they had money, because money is the answer to everything. I find that quite sad, as while having some money can provide us the food and shelter we need to survive, it cannot provide us with the personal characteristics we want to possess.

So here are 10 things money cannot buy which I believe are characteristics we should all strive to possess:

  • Love
  • Faith
  • Character
  • Integrity
  • Compassion
  • Trust
  • Common sense
  • Respect
  • Wisdom
  • Peace

Has your money bought you everything you want? Has it helped you be the person you want to be?

Don’t let money be the be all and end all of everything you try to achieve, because ultimately it cannot help you find love, grow your faith, build character or integrity, be compassionate, be trustworthy, have common sense, show respect or wisdom, or live in peace.

 

hands reaching to each otherSometimes think some people just do things to help or assist other for their own glory and self-gratification rather than because they actually want to help others.

Character is doing the right thing when nobody’s looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that’s right is to get by, and the only thing that’s wrong is to get caught ~ J. C. Watts

Don’t be the person that only reaches out to others when you know someone else will see your act of kindness; Don’t be the person that only contacts  someone who hasn’t attended church for a while, just so you can go and tell everyone what you’ve done.

Do reach out to others because it’s the right thing to do, and because you know it’s what Jesus would do.
