Gist of Immortal by Lex Meyer (vol.33)
The world exalts the wealthy and uses financial gain to measure success. Still, Yeshua said, “It is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 19:23). People are consumed with things like houses, cars, clothes, technology, entertainment, and financial gain, but those things will all pass away. Worldly wealth is not important to God, but a person of noble character and wisdom is worth more than rubies. That meant we must place value in the things of God, and not on earthly things because our God is a jealous God who wants His people to abstain from all forms of idolatry. “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:19-21).
