Seeing Under the Surface

Lavan has got his eyes on the gold.
When Eliezer comes bearing gifts for Yitzchak's future bride, Lavan seems to be more intrigued by the treasures than he is interested in the story behind them. He's consumed, thinking there will be more for the rest of the family (Rashi Bereshit 24:30).
How often are we enticed by what we see on the surface? How much do we miss of the deeper story?
