Word of GOD or worldly riches?

One early morning, as he rummaged through the garbage bins to find food, a homeless man stumbles upon a box with a note on the outside: “Within this box are two compartments that will change your life forever”. “You can choose only ONE!”
He proceeded to open the box: There was another note on the inside: “Open first the right compartment”

RIGHT Compartment: Within was the Authorize King James version of the Holy Bible with a hand written note:

Jesus, the only begotten Son of God says: “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:10).

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” (Matthew 6:19-21).

“How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of God” (Luke 18:24).

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the [TREE OF LIFE], which is in the midst of the [PARADISE OF GOD]” (Revelation 2:7).

“[I AM HE THAT LIVETH, AND WAS DEAD; AND, BEHOLD, I AM ALIVE FOR EVERMORE], Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelation 1:18).

The homeless man then proceeded to open the left compartment.

Left Compartment: Within is the latest smartphone with instructions to turn on and to play the voice note:

“May name is anonymous, and you have exactly nine (9) minutes to agree.”

“I have been observing you for sometime. I have no children to leave my wealth and riches.”

“There is a folder marked “keys to my wealth”. To give you an example: Swiss bank accounts in the millions, fully staffed mansions in major cities, private islands, private jets, luxury cars and the list goes on.”

“However, you must agree to follow the strict guidelines of the Trustee of my Estate to preserve this wealth for the next person who shall be chosen upon your death.”

“Finally, you will have a luxury lifestyle but, you will end up like the rich man in the biblical story of Lazarus and the rich man (Luke 16:19-31).”

The clock in ticking and you have six (6) minutes.

What if we were in this homeless man’s position, which compartment would we choose?
