YOUR HEART IS WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS PART 2
Jesus’ point – There is no absolutely firm, unshakeable security to be found in material things.
LUK 12:15 -And He said to them, “Beware, and be on your guard against every form of greed; for not even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions.”
“?I was happier doing mechanic’s work.?
“I have made many millions, but they have brought me no happiness.?
The poorest man I know is the man who has nothing but money.?”
“?The care of millions is too great a load … there is no pleasure in it.?”
He described himself as
“?the most miserable man on earth.?”
MAT 16:26 “For what will a man be profited, if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
It is where Our Father lives.
It is where Jesus came from.
It is where the Throne of God stands.

I have not departed from the command of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.
PSA 62:10 If riches increase, do not set your heart upon them.
PRO 16:16 How much better it is to get wisdom than gold!
And to get understanding is to be chosen above silver.
ECC 5:10 He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves abundance with its income.
COL 3:1-2 – If then you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
2 Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.
