Proverbs 17:1 Better a dry crust with peace and quiet than a house full of feasting, with strife. There are many important things in life, but what are those things that are most important? Take a moment and ponder. What are those things in your life that cause the most strife? And what are those things that bring the most peace? "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field."
"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it (Matthew 13:44-46)." What are those things we are holding to most tightly? Are they true riches?
