Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.
Invest Your Resources
Today’s promise is about how we spend the resources God has put into our lives.
You have a choice as to where you invest your wealth. You can invest it here on earth or in eternity.
Nothing Wrong with Wealth
Jesus was not against wealth. He never taught that wealth was a sin or that wealthy people were evil. He did remind us that earthly wealth is fleeting. No matter how hard you try or how much money you make, you can’t take it with you.
There is nothing wrong with a 401K or a savings account, but they are temporary. A stock portfolio can fall to nothing in a matter of days. Someone can rob you of your jewelry, or your company can squander your retirement plan. How many people do you know, that for one reason or another, have lost their entire life savings?
Investment that Last Forever
The only investments that last forever are those made into the kingdom of God. As you invest in eternity, your investment will last forever and will never decay, rust, or lose value. Your heavenly assets will give a return of changed lives, restored families, and eternal souls entering the kingdom of God.
Kingdom investment is not always about money. It can be about time or talent. Whatever you invest, you can rest assured that your investment in the Kingdom of God will pay out through all eternity. Eternal investments bring about eternal rewards.
As you invest in eternity, you have the promise that your treasure will never decay, never lose value, and never be destroyed.
Look at today’s promise one more time.
Matthew 6:19-20 – Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.
Make these confessions.
I invest my time, talent, and finances in the Kingdom of God.
God promises to reward my kingdom investment.
Earthly treasure will fade, but my heavenly treasures will last forever.
God uses my kingdom investments to minister and to bring others to Christ.
I am storing up heavenly treasure for all eternity.
In Jesus’ Name,
When you store your treasure in the Kingdom of God, you know it will pay dividends throughout all eternity. Your investments in the Kingdom of God will always return a blessing and count toward your eternal reward.
