What Is the Profit in Gaining Everything in This World and Losing Your Integrity?

Shelter From The Rain

 In life the media shows you images of the things that you should be seeking for in life, beautiful mansions, expensive cars. We are shown many of these images from the day that we are born, but what is a home, is it not a shelter from the rain, cold, snow etc. Is it not a place where you can get protection from the elements of nature.
