"Do not accumulate for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. But accumulate for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. So then, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Today has enough trouble of its own.
Matthew 6:19-21, 34 NET

Took youth to park to distribute food. Met an engineer reading the Bible. Rich millionaire Christian investing his money in church planting in 3rd world.
Where is your focus? Where is your heart?
Multiply started a coffe plantation in Thailand. Want to produce 200 tonne of coffee. Dave offered the angry man a watermelon and a job. That man Isaiah is now a pastor. Baptized 10 people last Sunday. They have a meeting in Rangoon today. They are asking 100 people to come to the Lord today.
Where is your treasure?
Where are your eyes? Lust?
Business man had a model of a jet he meant to buy. What he was worshipping. Will you allow God to refocus your life? He lost everything including his marriage. Things would have been different if he had surrendered his heart.

Self focus leads to anxiety. Worry.
Is your smart phone giving you worries. Narcissism is self absorbed and destructive.
