One of the readings for Lent was Matthew 6:19-21:
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.In meditating on this as part of Jim Robertson's Lenten Embers project, the idea for this cartoon came to me. I have to give a small nod to Peter Rollins as well, who often turns ideas upside down and inspired a similar treatment of this passage.
