It is said, “He who dies with the most toys wins”… but what if you lose your soul in the process?
We all get caught up in the “keeping up with the neighbors” race. Remember that your goal is to gather riches in heaven, not on earth. Think of at least one of your earthly possessions, and trade it in for a heavenly bounty by giving it to someone in need.
Treasure in Heaven. “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal. But store up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be. The Light of the Body.
Matthew 6:19-21 (NABRE)
