A teaching of Jesus' during The Sermon on the Mount

Jesus tells us to not amass riches here on earth, instead to store up our riches in our heart and in heaven.

This is something I aspire to. We're constantly bombarded by images telling us that if we have this or if we wear that then we are good.

I know that I am happiest when I am reading, or spending time in the garden. But time and time again, when I'm down I will turn to Retail Therapy like the adverts tell me to. It's a high for maybe a couple of hours, but the bills soon get me down again.

I yearn to be rich in my heart, and to not seek material riches for the sake of it. I know that I would be happier, I just need to find the strength.
