Jesus warns, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” 

William Still comments, “When people are convinced that life consists in the abundance of their possessions, they have completely identified life with material objects, and are, alas, already lost souls. They have virtually cut themselves off from the life of God, and his ultimate verdict will be only to recognize and confirm that.”

– David C. Searle, ed. Through the Year with William Still (Edinburgh: Banner of Truth, 2006), 212.
