Those who put their trust in wealth or material possessions will be disappointed. (Jesse Deloe, editor and writer)
TV ads tell us that investing in certain companies will guarantee growing assets and a well-funded retirement. Others tout the value of buying gold and silver as a better investment. The accumulation of material things that fill our attics, garages, and storage bins, however, testifies to our misplaced faith in temporal assets. Better invest in eternal, spiritual values.
Don’t store up treasures [or invest] here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. (Matthew 6:19)
