“Lay not up for yourself treasures on earth, where moth and rust occur and thieves break in and steal. Rather lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven where neither moth, rust or thieves can take it away” (Matthew 6:19-20).
Jesus said the most important thing in life isn’t money, instead it’s doing the will of God (Acts 8:20; Luke 12:15). This past week a man lost his money to a robber, which proves money can be here today and gone tomorrow. We must not make money our main goal, but that doesn’t mean that we aren’t to be concerned about money. One should save for retirement, and one should use money for his needs and wants. But men go wrong when they develop no interest in God and live primary for money (1 Timothy 6:10,17; James 5:1-3). So money is great to have, and if you have some: use it! But don’t be obsessed with money because it cannot save our souls, nor can we take it along after death (1 Tim. 6:7).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
