“Violence has grown into a rod of wickedness. None of them will remain: none of their multitude, none of their wealth, and none of the eminent among them.”
Ezekiel 7:11 HCSB
The Lord is saying what I already know, but certainly need to be reminded of: the things of this world are nothing. They are not gods, and cannot substitute in any way for a relationship with Him. If I put my faith and trust into my money, or “things,” I shouldn’t be surprised if I find myself clinging to these things and getting no comfort. This isn’t the case if I build my treasure in heaven.
