“My future goals are not tied to any gross sales or net worth statistics.
My main priority is to learn to serve God better each day. The achievements that we make and the possessions or wealth that we accumulate throughout our lives on this earth are not important. This is not our home and none of those things really belong to us. They are merely tools for us to use in accomplishing God’s work. Tools that He uses to prepare us for our true home.”
