Treasures In Heaven

You see commercials on TV all the time “You, yes YOU, can invest in GOLD!!  Trade in your money for something that will have value forever!”

But imagine seeing one like this “Hi, this is Jesus.  Would you like to invest in eternity?  That’s right; the things you do today could have eternal value!" 

What are you investing your life in?

I always wonder…am I really, truly, making the best use of my time and money?  Am I investing it, not in the things that will all pass away, but in the things that will have eternal value?

James 5:1-3 
 "Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you.  Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes.  Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days."  (Pretty strong language there huh?)

Matthew 6:19-21
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.  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."
