Day 32: Give to what Matters
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. Matthew 6:19-20
Our finances, material possessions and treasures on earth are temporary, but our treasures in heaven are eternal. But what exactly does it mean to have treasures in heaven? When we give to God’s kingdom, we store up treasures in heaven. Any time we give our time, talent or treasure to God, we are adding to our eternal investment. When we give to his kingdom, we are giving toward something bigger than ourselves, something that lasts forever.
Father God, help us to invest in what really matters–your kingdom. Give us the right perspective on our time, talent and treasure, that we might invest in your kingdom, and not in the temporary pleasures of this world. Show us where you want us to spend our time, where you want us to give, and where you want us to invest ourselves to give you glory, in Jesus’ name.
