Most of us are a bit uneasy about this matter of materialism, especially when we are compared to those who live in the underdeveloped nations.
But since the vast majority of us can look at many people around us who are more prosperous than we, we can rather easily convince ourselves that any message on materialism must apply to someone else.
Materialism, however, has nothing to do with how much money you or I have in the bank. It has little to do with whether you drive a Rolls Royce or an Old Clunker.
Materialism is primarily an attitude toward money and its importance. Materialism is an attitude which attaches to money and material goods more importance than they deserve.
To go one step further, materialism is primarily a matter of reversed priorities. You cannot identify a materialist by an audit, but only by exposing his or her attitudes.
