STORING TREASURES IN HEAVEN

STORING TREASURES IN HEAVEN

STORING TREASURES IN HEAVEN

There is nothing intrinsically evil in acquiring wealth. It should be used to serve a good purpose. However, a follower of Christ is required to draw a balance between what is consumed on self and immediate family, what is stored in heaven and what is left behind on earth.

Hear what the Lord said in Luke 16 (NKJV)

1 He (Jesus) also said to His disciples: “There was a certain rich man who had a steward, and an accusation was brought to him that this man was wasting his goods.

 2 “So he called him and said to him, ‘What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your stewardship, for you can no longer be steward.’

  8 “So the master commended the unjust steward because he had dealt shrewdly. For the sons of this world are more shrewd in their generation than the sons of light.

 9 “And I say to you, make friends for yourselves by unrighteous mammon, that when you fail, they may receive you into an everlasting home.

 10 “He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much.

 11 “Therefore if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?

 12 “And if you have not been faithful in what is another man’s, who will give you what is your own?

 13 “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”
