Two observations: “Money is a good servant, but a very poor master to have. Choose well!”

“Richer than gold is the love of my Lord, better than splendour and wealth”

The next two verses of Luke’s Gospel record: “The Pharisees, who loved money, heard this and laughed at him. He said to them ‘You are the very ones who pass yourselves off as virtuous in people’s sight. But God knows your hearts. For what is throught highly of by man is loathsome in the sight of God.’ ”

You are invited to ponder these points
