Treasure in Heaven
We all need money , it’s so important to us and we need it in our everyday life , money is something that is unavoidable.
We can imagine a world where there is every resource available and everything available for our comfort and is provided to us freely without any cost. If this happens so we people would never ever thought of working in our life , obviously there is no need to work because whatever we need , we are given freely and it is freely available to all of us.
But the truth is – nothing is free in this world so people work for money and we need money in our everyday life to buy the things we need everyday. Our ‘need’ is one of the main reasons of working for money.
And here…., my main aim is not to talk about how to make money and more money everyday but to look at what are the consequences if we start loving money. Because money is something that make us fall in love with it and eventually we rush after money not because we need but just because we want more and more to satisfy ourselves.
As it is already warned in the Bible , Psalm 62:10 says “though your riches increase, do not set your heart on them.”
Money is not at all bad but the way people use it is. The love of money is bad.
1 Timothy 6:10 (BIBLE)
“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” This verse from the Bible explains everything ,
- The love of money is the root of all the evil , when money increases then we cannot control the money but the money controls us , and this happens because we eventually starts loving money and the truth is whoever we love has control over us. Let’s not love the money and everything will be okay, okay in the sense we will not be controlled by our money. But we will control the money.
- The love of money takes us away from faith whereas FAITH is the core of Christian life and when we are erred from the faith , we cannot have peaceful life and the money without peace is useless.
Let’s put our heart and mind in Jesus and in Heaven so that we would give our money for the glory of God and will be away from all the sins that want to rule over us when our money increases.
MATTHEW 6 : 19-21 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
And I believe whatever we give today for the kingdom of God is stored in Heaven. Not only the money but the praise and thanks and the worship we offer Him today is stored in Heaven as a treasure.
And we must be so excited that we will meet Jesus and wow ! what a wonderful time we will have there in Heaven , where there is no sorrow and no crying but only joy and happiness and peace and glory of God spread all over.
Have a blessed weekend …… God bless..!!!!
