Gabriel Metsu, “Lazarus and the Rich Man”

The next time you’re tempted to want more, remember this verse. Sometimes having everything really means having nothing. In life, everything is a compromise. If you want this, you’ll have to sacrifice that. We must always ask ourselves, “What am I willing to give up?”

And then ask the question, is our greed worth the cost?

Maybe not so much.

This life is, at most, 100 years. I’d much rather have my reward in the next life, which lasts an eternity.
