What Money Can Buy

Money can buy:  

  • A bed but not sleep.
  • Books but not brains.
  • Food but not appetite.
  • Finery but not beauty.
  • A house but not a home.
  • Medicine but not health.
  • Luxuries but not culture.
  • Amusement but not happiness.
  • A crucifix but not a Savior.
  • A church pew but not heaven.

What money can’t buy, Jesus Christ can give freely, without charge.
