Treasures on earth, treasures in heaven - Which world is most important to you?
"The man who loves money can never have enough" (5:10). Some people are never satisfied, They're always wanting more. This is the world's way. The more you have, the more you want. The Lord's way is very different: "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth...Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven...Do not be anxious, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'...Seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well." "Has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the Kingdom which He has promised to those who love Him?" (Matthew 6:21-23,31-33; James 2:5). There's more to life than "getting on in the world." "Treasures on earth, treasures in heaven" - Which world is most important to you?
