Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?

So today I made the life-altering decision that I wanted to be a millionaire. Well, maybe not quite a millionaire, but at least wealthy. Self-absorbed you say? That's a negative. After a very inspiring lecture given by a wonderful man by the name of Dr. Emam who runs a clinic for those without insurance, I realized that even good, charitable ideas need to be backed by money. His clinic would not have been possible without the generous donations of people who had money to spare (lots of it too, might I add) and were willing to continue contributing so that he could run his clinic and help those that are unable to get basic health care, either from insurance or from the state.
I feel like God has blessed me with the ability to be frugal and hopefully I will save enough money in the next few years so that I can start giving back abundantly. Either way, that is my goal and the reason why I want to be a millionaire. God works through His children to help His children.
