Chestnut Ridge Church
True Riches—Part 3
In the book of Matthew. Jesus said “Store up treasures in heaven.” After these intriguing words, He suggests that heavenly investments are better than earthly ones. In heaven, thieves can’t break in and steal our wealth, and moths can’t destroy what we have. This statement peaks our interest, but what does it truly mean? How do we store up treasures in heaven? What are our treasures? How can we use what we have to get the greatest return on investment? Join us for the series, True Riches, as we explore how we can follow Jesus’ command.
