Fr. Elias preaches on the gospel of today that admonishes us to not place too much importance on earthly treasure. Father relates this to an over emphasis on one's self, a self-centeredness on our own needs that makes us unconcerned for other people and unconcerned about God. We need to look at God as one who deserves worship for his own sake and this is a fundamental duty first and foremost and then when this prerequisite is fulfilled, religion will be something that fulfills us and it will do so in a much more profound and reliable manner than even billions of dollars of material wealth can ever do.
