In my life, well, in all of our lives, we acquire things. God created us to live in the physical world, and to survive here we need material things. We build houses, weave cloth to make cloths, forge steel, plant farms, build furniture, make glass and pottery, make paper, write books, and things we just find beautiful, like jewelry. We sometime develop an emotional bond with physical objects, an attachment to them. Of course this does not mean that we worship material things, things made of bricks and stone or gold, like Christ said, worship God alone. A normal person will also respect and care for his material possessions, in some cases his life depends on them.

- I got such joy from building models, and I learned so much from them, every single one of them disappeared, I never would have done that, even Malcolm Forbes kept his toy soldiers.
- My toy soldiers that my cousin Dennis gave me every time I went to see them, he always sent me home with something, and I never would have thrown even one of them away.
