Matthew 6:19-21 (NKJV) 19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
While the greed is the root of all evil. Money in its self can be used in a spiritual way. Jesus said that we are to lay up for ourselves treasures in heaven. How do we do this? When we give in support of the Lord’s work, we are storing up treasures in heaven. But make sure it is the Lord’s work that you giving to. There are many scammers out there. And there are many false preachers and teachers out there to. You ought to know who you are giving too and the organization you are giving to. Make sure that your giving will actually be used for the Lord’s work. Be certain that your giving is used for the spreading of the gospel and to get out the Word of God. Now, you may say, “I don’t give to get something in return.” But you ought to, because our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ said, “lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven.” This is the right motivation for giving. Why? The reason is this, Jesus said “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Where your treasure is, that is where you are going to spend most of your time thinking. If it is in the bank, then you will be going to the bank a lot. But if your treasures are in heaven, then you are certainly going to think about heaven a lot. So, the question is, where is your heart my friend?
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
