A person who places his main focus on spiritual growth will not worry about material matters. He wants material goods for their function as tools for his spiritual needs. He therefore feels assured that he will be supplied with whatever he needs to meet his spiritual needs. If he lacks something, he realizes that he does not have a spiritual need for it.
(Michtav M'Eliyahu, vol.1, p.206; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, p.164)
