My brother Caleb used to have a T-shirt that read, "I have no job, no car and no money. But I'm in a band." I think it can be a temptation for anyone to hide behind our achievements, whatever they may be. A successful job, a nice car, a big house, a trophy spouse, great children and even a prominent role in a church are all great things. But none of these things will make me a good person. I think it depends - how do I treat my family and friends? Am I generous? Am I humble? Am I respectful and loving? I think these things define us, in the long term, more than our surroundings. Just some random thoughts as I sit typing on my new MacBook Pro in my BMW outside of my lakeside mansion.
