Standard of Living
Standard of Living from The Legacy of Home
In the old days, of the 1800's and early 1900's, they would define "extravagances" as trying to live in society. It was attempting to live outside of your financial means - to be something you were not. The very wealthy were said to be the most important people. To live among them, to be invited to their social events, meant that you were moving up in life. You had to have money to dress a certain way, to live in a fashionable house, and to eat dainty and abundantly rich food. This cost a great deal of money. Yet, even then, there were happy families who lived quiet lives in common villages. They did not have social ambitions. They were happiest in their humble homes and with a dedication to character, virtue, family, and a life dedicated to trust and faith in the Lord.
