More Precious Than Earthly Wealth

There is no need to fear when times of trouble come, even though surrounded by enemies! They trust in their wealth and boast about how rich they are, yet not one of them, though rich as kings, can ransom his own brother from the penalty of sin! For God’s forgiveness does not come that way. For a soul is far too precious to be ransomed by mere earthly wealth. There is not enough of it in all the earth to buy eternal life for just one soul, to keep it out of hell. Psalm 49:5-9 

What shall it profit a man, 
if he shall gain the whole world, 
and lose his own soul? 
Mark 8:36

Absolutely true Karen,
the riches acquired through knowing Jesus are far more valuable than anything in this world.
God bless you.
