Our relationship with money starts young, with the lessons and examples of our parents. Then our culture continues to shape money’s impact on our lives, blasting us with messages that more is better and we must get our share of it or else someone else will. We are afraid that we won’t have enough. And worse, we mistakenly believe that we can never have enough money. We have forgotten that money is just something that we created to facilitate the exchange of goods and services. Now it’s money we seek to produce and serve. And, like so much else in our lives, it seems to be in scarce supply. But we do have a choice. We can recognize that we already do have enough.
