How are We Storing Treasures? What do you place your security in? You see, that is what earthly riches are about, security. A safe with cash, precious metals, bullets, and guns. An account with a comma or two or three. A great career and lots of certifications to keep you employable. Lots of connections and friends. BUT, there is nothing secure about them.
All of these are attempts at self-sufficiency. They are merely ways to be our own supply. There is no security on this earth. There is the illusion of security. But, it only takes a relatively small tragedy to erase it.
Where are We Storing Treasures? So, where is your treasure? Where is your heart? What do you fear losing? Certainly, there are losses worthy of grief. But, the Father is good and will care for those truly precious things. The more we give to Him, the more we secure.
I only know a few ways to save in the banks of Heaven. Giving - God honors giving. money, time, or sacrifice. He promises to return far more than is given. Prayer- Your prayers ascend to Heaven's Altar and will one day be on display for all. Tears - God apparently saves them for you. That way they can all be done away with in might celebration. AndWorship - Our worship is eternal. It inhabits far more than the moment it fills.
