    Why would it be?

    If you have the resources and are generous with your sharing your blessings, I don't see why not. Heck, we certainly don't NEED a sailboat but it's awfully nice!

    Why yes, the internet, cable TV, cell phones, I pads, etc are all right up there with food, water, air, clothing and housing for essential needs.

    Ecc_2:24 There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.
    Ecc_3:13 And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God

    Ecc_5:18 Behold that which I have seen: it is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labour that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him: for it is his portion.
    Ecc_5:19 Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.
