    I like this inspiration as it reminds me that I find enjoyment in experiences instead of acquisitions.

    Yes and no,If they made politeness a legally binding requirement things could really get messed up.

    How true this is. Material possessions are fleeting at best, but experiencing new things and helping others stay with you forever.

    I agree. How does one achieve freedom? Consider the following: How does one defend oneself against the Devil's most effective weapon in Satan's constant fight to end our very existence - doubt? Do you remember the story of how the serpent tricked Eve into eating the apple by making her doubt God's command not to eat the apple? Never for even a fraction of a second doubt your constant need to be a friend to God, and God will in return never doubt His need to be a friend back to you and help you in life. There is no better friend to have than God. How does one be a friend to a symbol of good that one can not touch, see, smell or talk to? All we know about God that is thoroughly documented in the book of Genesis is that He made everything in six days and He then rested on the seventh day. One way for us to be God's friend and to honor and respect God is to copy what God did by working hard for six days by helping God create a better world and then resting ourselves on the final seventh day for a period of not less than 24 hours. Resting means the absence of work. We all need a day off from the weekly grind. To satisfy the minimum spiritual/religious/legal definition of rest consider the following: Rest means to completely cease from all monetary transactions (Stop buying groceries and things!), to stop gossiping about those around you (Be quiet for heavens sake!), to stop traveling to places outside the city in which you live (Put a damper on your travel!), and to stay away from public events such as live concerts (Rest your ears as well!). When you rest for twenty four hours or more following six days of hard work trying to make the world a better place to live, then God will support you and everything you do in life as He feels that you are on his side and are truly trying to be His friend. God will then without doubt help you find purpose and success in life. Many people think observing a day of rest per week is optional. It is not. In fact, refusing to rest one day each week is not only a violation of one of the 10 commandments, but it is a blatant denial of the existence of God as well as an open invitation to Satan that has its own extremely serious unforeseen consequences!

    Can't buy freedom, cause we will never truly be free. Someone is always holding onto the reciept!

    I ride my bike to work every day, thankfully its only 2 miles from my home in this cold weather. My freedom is in books - free to explore every world real and unreal.

    So true. The thing I appreciate most about having a little bit of money is the flexibility it can provide. I'll trade it all day for more time to do what matters to me, my family and my community!

    More then anything, this speaks to many of us today.

    I miss riding my bike. I need to get some rides in before the winter is upon us.
