I’m sure there are more than TWELVE, so I’m calling on everyone on myLot to come up with more things that money can’t buy. Here are the twelve that I thought of: 1. Manners 2. Morals 3. Respect 4. Character 5. Common Sense 6. Trust 7. Integrity 8. Patience 9. Happiness 10. Contentment 11. Peace 12. LOVE I’ve already thought of a few more, ( Joy, Laughter) just by typing up these, but I will see what everyone else can come up with. Help me out here. Galatians 5:22, 23 lists these: "Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness, self-control"

I will dispute two of those. Money can buy a degree of contentment as financial security provides stress relief form worrying about bills, healthcare costs etc. You can't put a price on that. Money can buy a degree of happiness due to the above stated reason and providing the means for happiness inducing activities such as travel.

Yes, a degree of contentment comes from financial security and a degree of happiness can be had if a person has the money to participate in activities such as traveling, but true contentment and happiness is much more than being able to enjoy the finer things of life. I say that because, I know of persons who have the money to do almost anything they want to do, but are not happy and content. One person I know personally, lives in a fabulous house, travels extensively, has everything that money can buy, but is rude to others and is always complaining about something. It's obvious to me, that that person is not truly happy with life.
