'Lay not up for yourself treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and thieves break through and steal;
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.' (3 Nephi 13:19,21)
The world would have us believe that we must have lots of money.
A big house, bigger then we need.
A fancy car.
When i was a child it was known as 'keeping up with the Jones'. Not even sure who the Jones are but as a child it always seemed that we had to be one better than them. Today we worry constantly about security, about the loss of financial wealth and earthly pocessions. The scriptures warn that if we lay our hearts upon the treasures of the earth then in the end we will have nothing for after death we can take nothing with us but ourselves and our families. I know for certain that God will not want to know how much money i have made during my earthly life but what exactly i did with the money that i made, whether that was a little or a lot.
The Saviour Jesus Christ as left us this message 'Peace i leave with you, my peace i give unto you: not as the world giveth, give i unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14:27)
Remember this always ...
