Where will you leave your riches? Nothing will remain but to cringe among the captives or fall among the slain. (NIV) There will be no hiding in the day of judgment. There will be no use for the ill-gotten wealth. We ought to heed the warning. Those three questions apply to all people everywhere in every age. Consider them to your own benefit. Ignore them to your own detriment.
