Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (The Bible)
What people really value in life is demonstrated by their activity, their habits, the way they use their resources. We may say that we love God, or we’re altruistic and want to help people who are less fortunate than we are. But, when more of our time and money are spent in pursuing the personal pleasures of this life, we show what we really value most.
I amassed silver and gold for myself, and the treasure of kings and provinces . . . everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind (Ecclesiastes 2:8, 11).
