from Leslie Vernick:
“When we believe our security in life comes from amassing treasures- whether material, social, intellectual, or spiritual- we are deceived. The lie continued when, deep within our heart, we believe that we can be secured and at peace if or when we have enough of whatever we think we need.
When our heart believes this lie, it follows that we desire these things…We deceive ourselves when we rest securely in our riches or in ourselves instead of in God.”
