Matthew 6:19-23

“Where your treasure is, there also will be your heart.”There were two sets of virtues, the résumé virtuesand the eulogy virtues.The résumé virtuesare the skills you bring to the marketplace. The eulogy virtues are the ones that are talked about at your funeral — whether you were kind, brave, honest or faithful. Were you capable of deep love? (The Moral Bucket List).We all know that the eulogy virtues are more important than the résumé ones. But our culture and our educational systems spend more time teaching the skills and strategies you need for career success than the qualities you need to radiate that sort of inner light. Many people are clearer on how to build an external career than on how to build inner character.
