Spurgeon, well-known preacher from England long ago says,
No form of wealth will compensate us for losing our souls.” Men have been known, on their dying beds, to have their money-bags brought to them, and they have put them to their hearts and have
said,“This won’t do,” and they have taken up
another and put it to their palpitating hearts, and said again,“This won’t do.” Ah, no, it
cannot cure a heartache! Then what possibly can it do for a soul in eternity? Is it not a awful thing
to attend upon some men who die rich in ill-gotten gain? What are they the better for their wealth? They only have it said of them,“He died worth so much.” Then just the fighting among the relatives!
That is all, but they sleep in the same earth and the same worms devour them! Oh, may God grant you Grace to perceive that all the riches you can ever get would never make up for losing Christ!

An old Divine said:
“Who would refuse to give up a whole sky full of stars if he could buy a sun with them? And who would refuse to give up all the comforts of this life if he could have Christ at so good a price?”

As the Bible says, those who live for this life only are the most miserable, and I would say the most unwise.

Also, where your treasure truly is, there your heart is. For where will you be when the wind blows away the chaff of this life's gold?

Could you BE more smug and self-righteous? LOL!

And don't project your own misery on to others and tell them they are miserable for calling you the mundane jerk you are.

Relaying the message of the Bible on where the real riches are does strike a chord with many. "lay up for yourselves treasure in heaven, where thieves cannot break through and steal"

Heaven is described in the book of Revelations to be where the masses lay prone singing praises to the evil sadistic being day and night for all eternity.
That does not sound like riches, rather slavery and mindlessness.
It sure is not a good reward that is for sure.

The riches that never dies consists of the wonderful sacrificial love of Jesus who died on the cross to pay our sin debt. No tears, no pain, no sickness, no hate, in heaven. That's true reward and true riches.

It's true hope as well!!
