"When we don't have what we want, the world corrupts us with covetousness. And when we do have what we want the world corrupts us with pride. This is what keeps us from loving God and loving each other. We love stuff. And when we don't have it, we crave it. And when we do have it, we love to talk about it incessantly, and waste time on it. And where is God in all that?"
~ John Piper, Finally Alive
