The things which you have prepared—whose will they be?’ So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”

Matthew 7:26-27. Everyone who hears these words of mine, and doesn’t do them will be like a foolish man, who built his house on the sand. The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.
