Stuff, Mammon and Ice

Stuff is defined as “things we find in our junk pile that we thought we once needed.” ~ J. R. Seehusen

“The problem is not that we tried faith and found it wanting but that we’ve tried mammon and found it addictive, and as a result find following Christ inconvenient.” ~ Arthur Simon in “How Much is Enough; Hungering for God in an Affluent Culture” (Baker).

“Money is always there, but the pockets change.” ~ Gertrude Stein to Ernest Hemmingway; Stein was an American writer, she lived from 1874-1946.

“In life, everyone gets the same amount of ice. The poor gets theirs in the winter. The rich get theirs in the summer.” Author Unknown.

"No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.” Author: Jesus Christ (Matt.6:24)
