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"

That's right! How many people would pay money for good health? But, unfortunately we can't.

@louievill Yes, that's true too. You can't buy back one minute of your life.

That's right. Salvation will come to those who serve God faithfully and receive life through the undeserved kindness of God through the ransom of Christ Jesus.

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.

It can by love if you are a gold digger. And it can happiness if you just want things. But to real, humble, people. Money can't

What about family values that children should learn while growing up.

Yes, that would be a good one too. Children need to be taught early in life about not only family values but also about what the Bible has to say.

I think you have covered them all - or most of them. What about a great sense of humor?
