Affluence has the odd ability of granting a person their dreams without ever letting them enjoy them. Whether affluence is in the form of material amassing or privileged opportunities, always getting more can blind a person to what they’ve already gotten. What’s worse, it can prevent them from seeing what’s truly valuable.
The world has many tantalizing offerings. But if a person lets what they gain in this world define them for what’s coming in the next, they will be poor indeed. If only they knew the free gift that God offers that’s more valuable than anything that can be bought or traded here on earth.
