Treasure your relationships, not your possessions. (Anthony J. D’Angelo, author)
It would be foolish not to protect your assets: stocks, real estate, material goods, etc. But, as D’Angelo suggests, there are other assets that are even more valuable and need to be guarded carefully. Family comes to mind first and friends whether newly made or longtime. Especially shield your spiritual relationships; they are eternal.
A person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God. (Luke 12:21)
