Are you sure it’s worth it?
A gang of thieves once broke into a jewelry store, but instead of stealing anything, they switched the price tags. The next day, no one noticed the switch, so people were spending a huge amount of money for cheap junk, while others were paying only a few dollars for incredibly expensive jewelry.
Someone has switched the tags on our planet, with the result that people are focusing on the wrong things. They’re spending exorbitantly to furnish their lives with junk, and very little on what is really precious.
Jesus gave us a simple remedy for such a problem: “Seek the kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need,” Matthew 6:33.
