DO NOT STORE UP TREASURES

Matthew 6:19-20 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy and where thieves do not break in and steal.” For where your treasure is there your heart will be also.

There’s only one treasure we can take to Heaven with us. We can take another person, a friend or family member.

An epileptic girl fell into the fire and burned the flesh away from her hand. She required orthopedic surgery for the exposed bones and open wounds.

Through the help of my financial supporters I was able to pay the two hundred dollars for the operation.

And she later became a Christian. Meeting a need in someone’s life or investing in another person is a way to store up treasures in God’s kingdom by bringing someone to Heaven with you.
