John Wesley: Eternal Values

“I judge all things only by the price they shall gain in eternity.”
John Wesley (1903-1791) as recounted by Randy Alcorn in In Light of Eternity: Perspectives on Heaven (Colorado Springs: Waterbrook, 1999) 146.

My family is learning to limit the money we pour into material possessions and adopt an eternal perspective. This has led us to deploy more money to mission (God’s work) and memories (with family and friends).

What measure are you using, and how does it shape your decisions?
