Treasures in Heaven

Living in the United States, I am consistently bombarded with advertisements about all the “things I’m missing out on that will make me and my life better.” Such as a recent TV commercial showing a person saving thousands on purchasing a new car for themselves vs. the neighbor next door who didn’t save that much while buying gifts for others.
That’s quite the message: Let’s just take care of ourselves with expensive toys and forget everyone else. What a sad, selfish perspective that penetrates our culture—and that way of thinking is opposite of what the Bible instructs.
