A Springfield neighbor of Lincoln's was drawn to his door one day by the sound of the crying of children. He saw Lincoln passing by with his two sons, both crying lustily.
"What is the matter with the boys?" asked the man.
"Just what is the matter with the whole world!" answered Lincoln. "I have three walnuts, and each boy wants two."
Surely, this spirit is still abroad today.

Pro 28:25 (TLB): “Greed causes fighting; trusting God leads to prosperity.”
“Instead of complaining at his lot, a contented man is thankful that his condition and circumstances are not worse than they are. Instead of greedily desiring something more than the supply of his present need, he rejoices that God still cares for him. Such a one is content with what he has.” - A.W. Pink.
