The apostle Paul, who left a legacy of Biblical proportions chose to live for Christ and others, saying, in regard to possessions:

“…I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know both how to have a little, and I know how to have a lot. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being content – whether well fed or hungry, whether in abundance or need. I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:11-13 HCSB).
