But what exactly is called the right concentration? In other words, what should we focused on? Jesus Christ, the Son of God, tells us that our focus should be on the things above (Heaven), and not on the earthly things. He urges us to gather riches in Heaven, where no thieves can steal them away, and no moth can eat them.
The Creator tells us to focus on eternal things, and not to strive for mortal, passing, and imperfect things. Our eyes catch things that are visible, hence we tend to get more of them, but Jesus tells us to focus on what the physical eyes do not see, because those are the eternal things.
