A Quote by Milton R. Hunter on achievement, body, church, clothes, corruption, earth, entertainment, eternity, food, heart, heaven, home, jesus, learning, lies, money, needs, possessions, service, spirituality, taxes, time, trying, and worth

I have learned as I have become older that worldly goods and things are of minor importance. One needs only sufficient food to sustain his body, a reasonable amount of clothing to wear, and sufficient comforts of home, and probably some money for entertainment, cultural things, church service, taxes, and traveling. The man with worldly riches cannot use more. He cannot wear two shirts comfortably at one time, nor can he eat two meals at one time. (Of course I know some who try.) I do not mean that one should cease trying to achieve; but what I am trying to say is that one should put first things first. The things of greater worth lie in the realm of the spiritual. They really constitute our eternal possessions of untold worth. Remember the admonition Jesus gave: Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust cloth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust cloth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6 :19-21.
