Treasures

Maybe you are familiar with the expression, “You can’t take it with you.” These words mean that when you die, you won’t be able to take your money and possessions with you. Those things will stay on earth after you die.
Verses 16 and 17 of our Bible Reading say, “Don’t be afraid of people just because they are rich. Don’t be afraid of people just because they have big fancy houses. Those people won’t take a thing with them when they die. They will not take any of those beautiful things with them.”
Jesus said, “Don’t save treasures for yourselves here on earth…So save your treasure in heaven” (Matthew 6:19-20a). God doesn’t want us to collect treasures on earth that can be destroyed. Instead, He wants us to collect treasures that will last forever. We collect eternal treasures when we lead people to Jesus, say/sign praises to God and help other people.
I hope that today you will start saving treasures that will last forever.
