Matthew 6:19-21 “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.
Accumulating wealth is a great idea, go for as much of it as you can get, in fact let’s be greedy about it. Well that is if you are thinking about the treasure that you are storing away in heaven.
I need to let go of my earthly treasure and use it to help me accumulate treasure in heaven. I must not be proud of how well I can provide for my needs or place my trust in my earthly wealth, instead I need to be generous and willing to help those that are in need that I have the ability to help. That way my treasure will be stored in the right place to prevent suffering any loss, there isn’t any access for thieves and the stock market won’t crash, this treasure is made to last.
1 Peter 1:4 and we have a priceless inheritance–an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay.
Help me Lord to remember that my money belongs to you, help me to know how to use it for your purpose.
