SCRIPTURE COMMENTARY #187

"For where thy treasure is, there is thy heart also." (Matt. 6:21)

THE RIGHT USE OF WORLDLY POSSESSIONS consists in using them for God and in the practice of good works. Holy men, such as Abraham, Job and Tobias, possessed great riches, but they were not slaves to them. On the contrary, they made their wealth serve them, and expended it in the service of God and their neighbor.
