When it is often repeated in the Bible that we must cast aside our treasures to gain an everlasting treasure in Heaven, does this mean ALL worldly possessions or just money?

If I read these Scriptures correctly What Jesus considers treasure to be is the things you value the most.
Matthew 12:35 KJV
Matthew 6:21 KJV
For Satan as for many people today their treasure is power and or authority:
Luke 4:6 KJV
How Man treasures power is portrayed in the exchange between Pilate and Jesus:
John 19:10 and 11 KJV
In answer to your question in my feeble mind as far as the Kingdom goes it probably has to do with whatever it is that you desire more than obedience to God.
