Invest in Eternal Things
But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also (Matthew 6:20-21).
While giving gifts to others is great, the reality is that nothing we see around us will last forever. However, there are two things that will last forever: God’s Word and the souls of men and women. And through the local church, we have the opportunity to invest in that which will last forever. We have the chance to help others and discover that eternal investment is so much better than any thing on earth.
Are you focused on collecting the things of this world for yourself? Or are you determined to help build something that will last for eternity?
Ask God a bold prayer about how much you can invest in the local church in order to help build His kingdom.
Always remember those who are less fortunate. And do your part to donate to those who don’t have as much as you.
