I think the message of the passage Concerning Treasures is that you don’t need wealth to be happy as it says in the passage that

Promote the Message
I can relate this to today’s society because people who are wealthy think they have more power than the low class people who have no money and live on the streets and have no power
1. Lord I pray that people stop being greedy and care for the people around them starving for some food
2. Lord I pray that The hungry people who are homeless get full meals and a shelter to keep them warm
For these intension we pray to the Lord
Displaying the treasures of Your work,
Jesus, You invited me to follow You,
To sell my goods, to give to the poor,
And to completely submit Myself to You.
Desires for wealth leads to greed,
Satisfaction never being reached.
He who seeks no earthly possessions
Is free of all avarice aspirations.
Jesus, edify my weak human nature,
To resist unnecessary commodities,
Those classified as evident luxury.
May I subdue all greedy tendencies!
