Many a time in life, one goes through patches when we nod in agreement to Steve. It is not that money is not important; but that it hollows out the virtues that makes us human. (or as I like to call it 'creatures is God's image')
It takes away peace, lacked or loaded one always ends up paying undue attention to the instrument. Men have waged wars over it, and spent entire lives contemplating on how to make the next dime, only to wither out like the grass on the field.

"the Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want." (Psalm 23:1)
