    The Nature of True Wealth

    True wealth does not come from money, but from progressively working on one's own attributes. Money is simply one of various currencies, in this regard, and the most fleeting of them all.

    For instance:

    -Knowledge

    -Wisdom

    -Intelligence

    -Self-Respect

    -Integrity

    -Physical Strength

    -Mental Strength

    -Friendship

    -Love

    .

    .

    .

    etc. etc.

    In short, the road to self-mastery/self-actualization.

    High levels of these such currencies is true wealth, in my eyes.

    Nice aspirations but, many of those are very difficult to have without money.

    I think many homeless people on the streets would suggest that that is the case.

    Which of those is not attainable to homeless people?

    "For the creation was subjected to futility, not by its own will, but through the one who subjected it, on the basis of hope that the creation itself will also be set free from enslavement to corruption and have the glorious freedom of the children of God. " Romans 8:20,21
