Saturday - Is more money always better?
Not if more money requires so much more time on the job that you have to steal minutes from your family. Do not bankrupt your family while trying to make your bank account rich. If you want a life well spent, seek to balance money and time for work and family.

...for work and family. Principles drawn from the book - A Life Well Spent by Russ Crossin.
  
 
Sunday - Beware - the Perils of Prosperity
"...the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs ... not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment." 1 Timothy 6:10,17
