You still have God, and God is all.

“The richest nation in the world is America. We think we’re in a recession, but still cars are coming out longer and bigger and looking more like juke boxes than ever. And there’s more money in more bank accounts. They may make deductions from your paycheck, but after they’ve taken out everything you can think of, still the average fellow has more money than he used to.”

“If you take the kingdom of God and His righteousness, God will add money to you- as much as you need. If you take the kingdom of God and His righteousness, God may send your way learning and art and music and other legitimate earthly loves. God may send it all to you and let you have it. But it is always with the understanding that He can take it away again and you won’t grumble. You still have God, and God is all.”

These words by A. W. Tozer seem to be directed at the world we’re living in today. The author died in 1963. It never ceases to amaze me that the human condition is the same today as it was in each previous generation.
