Do you think that the way you handle money is an indication of your character? You have a limited amount, and so you choose to buy some things and not others. My word says a great deal about money. There are talents and pearls of great price.
Money is a measure of value, so the things you spend it on show what you value. You are wise to control your appetites and not spend more than you have, which is such an easy trap to fall into. Even if you stay out of debt your purchases still indicate the state of your heart, for where a man’s treasure is, there will his heart be also. If your heart is set on me, how will you spend your money?
