Worthless Treasure (What Money Can't Do)

You can buy a bed; not sleep.
Sure! You can buy the biggest, the most comfortable and the most cozy bed man can ever make but it is useless if you can't sleep naturally.
You can buy a book; not brain.
You might be a son or a daughter of a famous scientist but wasn't able to inherit your dad's brain. Sad to say you can hire the best tutor or purchase a good book and you can't buy a good spongy brain in the hardware.
You can buy food; not appetite.
Jealous how our beyond healthy friends eat the very last crumbs and you can buy all the menus you like but has no appetite for a bite.
You can buy a house; not home.
You can build a great house but sad to say it is useless if you have a broken home.
You can buy medicine; not health.
The ex-president of our country died because of cancer. For sure they have the money to finance the medicine and the operation but money can't buy health.
You can buy amusement; not joy.
You can be in Disneyland all the days of your life but there is always an emptiness inside of you.
You can buy a crucifix; not the Saviour.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:Not of works, lest any man should boast.

We always keep ourselves busy earning money. We toil hard to buy things that we need. My questions is, is this really want we really need or just a lucrative want?

As the Bible says in Matthew 6:19-20 "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:20But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal" I am so blessed I am to know the real source of true happiness despite of life's hardships and failure

Have you found the greatest treasure of all? Meditate on God's Word today and know the greatest treasure of all, no other than Jesus Christ.
