Scripture has taught for years:
1. Wealth has benefits. (Prov 14:24)
2. While money and the things it supplies can result in temporal happiness, money cannot guarantee happiness that lasts. (Eccl 5:10)
3. The eye and the appetite of man (in the flesh) is never satisfied. (Eccl 1:8)
Read the article [Maybe Money Does Buy Happiness After All -(Note: the article does not fully support the title)]... and you'll find the same issues being discussed.
Rather than look to money and to the things it can supply, look to the one who supplies all good things. (James 1:17)
Eccl 5:19 "Moreover, when God gives any man welalth and possessions, and enables him to enjoy them, to accept his lot and be happy in his work - this is a gift of God."
