Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139: 23-24
If you are investing for the wrong reasons, it's like having your ladder leaning against the wrong building. It won't matter how high you climb, you still end up on the wrong building.
