“Beware…lest—when you have eaten and are full, and have built beautiful houses and dwell in them…then you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gained me this wealth’” (Deut 8:11, 12, 17).

Material wealth often hides spiritual treasure. I like John’s description, that the Heavenly “city was pure gold, like clear glass” (Rev 21:18). God give us transparency, to see through the gifts to the Giver!
