The above passage sums up one of the main problems with the world today, especially for those of us in the United States. We have so much and yet our culture teaches us that we should still seek after more. In order to accumulate more possessions, we need to work more. This leads to less family time and a greater love of materialism.
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal. But store up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.” (Mt 6:19-21)
