"Matthew 6:20 But LAY UP for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 2 Corinthians 12:14 Behold, the third time I am ready to come to you; and I will not be burdensome to you: for I seek not yours, but you: for the children ought not to LAY UP for the parents, but the parents for the children. Comment: I think this is clearly showing us that material possessions and financial is not really going to bless your kids. It's the spiritual blessings we impart to them, from early childhood to adulthood that make for an eternal impartation. I read short Psalms or Proverbs to my 7yr old grandson now; and I did it when he was much younger too. He received Jesus as his Savior over a year ago. I will never stop praying for him or his parents. That's the gold and silver that you leave for your kids. Once they connect to peers and the world, they need our prayers more than ever. All through The Moses and Joshua years, it's commanded that they teach the history and the blessings To the children. Parents :) teaching their kids. They are your treasure. Mishael"
"Hello Omar, You are asking the right question. People searching for meaning outside of God often come up empty. It's not about wealth, that's why so many famous celebrities are unstable and have alcohol and drug addictions. The wisest man in the Bible who was a wealthy king wrote about this exact subject. It is worth reading: Ecclesiastes 2 I believe the meaning of life is love and relationships. Relationships with God, family, friends, neighbors. Life is a test and God is testing our character and if we want to seek and follow Him. The greatest commandment in the Bible is Mark 12:30-31. The Bible is full of wisdom on how to live our life- like an instruction manual for a good, meaningful life. In addition, people who help others often feel a great sense of fulfillment. Volunteering, helping neighbors, pursuing the betterment of others. Not everyone says thank you. Only 10% came back to thank Jesus for healing him. But this is a way to build 'treasure' in heaven instead of pursuing empty pursuits of this world, in my opinion. Matthew 6:20 John 16:33, 2 Corinthians 4:17, 1 Corinthians 13:13. https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/become-a-christian.php God bless you..."

While the word of GOD condemns slothfulness, laziness, it urges us to do things heartily as to the lord and not men (Colossians 3:23,24), which means we are called to excel (give the best we can) in all we do; including business and professionů However, we are warned against dishonesty, greed, love of money, selfishness and all excess that life tends to drive us in. In doing things heartily, obeying the lord, we are laying up treasures for ourselves in heavenů."

"Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it. Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors. "The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him." (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)"
