Can I buy some video games? Because in matthew chapter 6 verse 19, it says not to lay treasures on earth, so does that mean i can’t really get lots of stuff?

It's not the things or the stuff or money, it's the love of those things that is dangerous and leads to obsessiveness and idolatry.

Is that what you treasure? Or just what you enjoy? God wants us to enjoy life, just not at the expense of the next one, for you or others. 'eagleswings said it just right.
