There can be no doubt that possessive clinging to things is one of the most harmful habits in the Christian life. Because it is so natural, it is rarely recognized for the evil that it is. But its outworkings are tragic.
A. W. Tozer
The way of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD, but he loves him who pursues righteousness.
The Revised Standard Version
Live to shed joys on others.
Henry Ward Beecher
