5 of the Best Things in Life Money Can’t Buy

by | Mar 11, 2013 | Man

In a culture dominated by materialism, the desire for fine possessions and the belief that these possessions will bring you happiness hits close to home. We know people who believe this.

Every day we are confronted with the common opinion that money can solve your problems, make your dreams come true, and change your life for the better. But some of life’s greatest treasures cannot be purchased. They are rare and precious gifts.

Here are five of the best things in life that truly represent the aphorism, “Money can’t buy happiness.”

God’s Love

Although we may not always see it, God’s love is there. It is given in unexpected and special ways. What’s even better? Nothing can separate us from the gift of God’s love. No amount of money could buy Him. The thought that material possessions could buy the gladness God’s love has to offer is completely backwards. Thankfully, this love can be seen and truly appreciated daily.

Savoring the Great Outdoors

The outside world is open and free to everyone. The sky, trees, oceans, lakes, rivers, caves, deserts, and more are only some of the inspiring and beautiful traits of nature. Don’t neglect to appreciate these things, whether big or small. Look up, breathe deep into your lungs, and appreciate the beauty of the clouds or the night sky. This is for everyone. It is our planet, our playground, and our gift.

Your Child’s Laugh

Hearing your child’s happiness expressed in laughter is a precious and unforgettable moment. When you trigger that laughter, it’s like nothing else in the world matters. Their giggles are like medicine; they can treat a bad day. Whether it’s from a funny face, a tickle, or a silly joke, the pure delight and delirium you give your children is certainly one of the best things in life.

Conversation with Good Friends

No matter where it may be, talking with your friends can be therapeutic. Cost-free and no-strings-attached, these special moments in life when you can share your deepest and most important thoughts or silly and insignificant ideas with a friend are a true treasure. Don’t fail to acknowledge the power and peace-of-mind these relationships possess.

Your Wife’s Smile

Like a glowing flash of light is your wife’s smile. This reassuring expression warms your heart and reminds you of falling in love. Money can’t buy this expression. But, the simplest things will bring her to beaming gladness. The children, a surprise, a sweet favor, or a kind whisper are only a few of the little things that make her smile; a charm that money can never buy.
