18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. (Revelations 3:18 CSB)
We are interested in storing wealth on earth, acquiring things, and in general living well. That is the goal of most people today. However, all these things are perishable and will not follow us beyond the grave.
Yet, what we gain through God has eternal value and serves us both on earth and beyond.
