1 Timothy 6:6-8
But godliness with contentment is great gain.…
Once it was remarked to Lord Erskine that a certain man dying had left £200,000, whereupon he replied, "That's a poor capital to begin the next world with." Truly it was so, for if, on the other hand, the man had given it away in charity he would thus have really laid it up as treasure in heaven, where in a certain sense he would have possessed and enjoyed it, whereas in this case he left it all behind him on earth when he died, and thus really lost it.
