A heart of gold

Prosperity in this life or the next cannot be bought says Scripture. Satan offered it to Jesus [Mt 4:9] but it wasn’t his to give in the first place, however this doesn’t stop humanity from seeking wealth or good health as an ultimate pursuit above knowing Christ. People invest in & rely heavily on the earthly realm but Scripture reminds the reader & hearer that something much greater & more lasting exists.

Godliness with contentment is great gain says the Apostle Paul as he relays the heavenly message. Silver, gold & health may have their place, but it’s not top shelf, as far as our hearts are concerned, that should belong to God. [1 Tim 6:10]
