 Counsel

“But the great study and ambition of
the world is to obtain material,
temporal advantages, to the neglect of
the spiritual good . . . they did not
discern the true riches, and have not
laid up treasure in the heavens.”
                     EGW, Selected Messages,
                     book 2, p. 134.
