“If money be not thy servant, it will be thy master. The covetous man cannot so properly be said to possess wealth, as that may be said to possess him.”
Sir Francis Bacon
This is so true and the Bible talks about it, too! Don’t let money have you. You must be the master of your money; not a servant to it. That only happens when you become a giver. Giving with no strings attached frees you up and allows you to be self-less and not selfish.
