“I feel pulled in opposite directions over the money issue. Sometimes I want to sell all that I own, join a Christian commune, and live out my days in intentional poverty. At other times, I want to rid myself of guilt and enjoy the fruit of our nation’s prosperity. Mostly, I wish I did not have to think about money at all.” –Philip Yancey
“The idealization of poverty is one of the most dangerous illusions of Christians. Stewardship, which requires possessions and includes giving, is the true spiritual discipline in relation to wealth.” -Dallas Willard
