As with the lottery winners and others who essentially tripped and fell into a pile of money, the casual observer may decide that money is the problem here. It isn’t. The problem is lack of even the most remote level of common sense. Money is a wonderful resource, and can quite obviously do so much for so many. There are plenty of people who possess a woeful lack of any sense, but because they have limited resources, the damage they can do is itself more limited; armed with sacks full of money, those same people can become weapons of mass (including self) destruction.
Money is a tool. I can take a hammer and build a house; I can also use that same hammer to smash in a car windshield. I can serve as a good steward of the money with which God has blessed me and provide for a meaningful existence for myself and my loved ones…or I can become a train wreck with all the fearsome power of a locomotive.
10 bathrooms? Really??
