It is true: Most Christians are focused on laying up treasures here on earth…
Matthew 6:19 is a gentle reminder and slight slap on the wrist, a tap on the shoulder. It is recorded in scripture to remind every child of God to take caution against the luring strength of worldliness (one of the greatest enemies of the soul).
Jesus wants us lay up treasures in Heaven ( Math.6:20). The world teaches us to seek happiness in this world. The worldly will never teach you about eternity or encourage you to invest in those things which have eternal value.
Do you view God’s Kingdom as an arena and avenue through which you can fill your pockets or is it a place to invest in building God’s Kingdom, Heaven’s Treasure and Heaven’s people? What is your perspective? Feel free to ask questions/ leave comments below.
