While many people do have genuine financial problems (due to excessive debt or unemployment and so forth), for most of us worrying about money comes…

Jesus once said, “Do not store up for yourselves treasure on earth. Where moths and vermin destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven where moths and vermin do not destroy where thieves do not break in and steal.
