"Better is a little with the fear of the Lord
Than great treasure and turmoil with it."
A Christian may be poor financially, but he is rich spiritually. For the fear of the Lord brings spiritual wealth that will last eternally. His future is secure in Christ. "A devout life does bring wealth, but it's the rich simplicity of being yourself before God. Since we entered the world penniless and will leave it penniless, if we have bread on the table and shoes on our feet, that's enough." 1 Timothy 6:6-9 The Message. When we preoccupy ourselves with getting more, we miss the joy of what God is giving us now.
