Pro 16:8 Better is a little with righteousness than great gain without right.

Wow, is it not great to open up and find just the right verse for your circumstance.....this really sums my thoughts on our situation....

I also like what the Henry Commentary had to say on this verse....

It is maintained that a small estate, honestly come by, which a man is content with, enjoys comfortably, serves God with cheerfully, and puts to a right use, is much better and more valuable than a great estate ill-got, and then ill-kept or ill-spent. It carries with it more inward satisfaction, a better reputation with all that are wise and good; it will last longer, and will turn to a better account in the great day, when men will be judged, not according to what they had, but what they did.

My dad always had this concept of life....not that he did not want to improve our lifestyle...but he often said it was not what you have but how you got it....and how you used it....such wisdom.
