I. Pursue Treasures in Heaven not .....
Vs. 19-21
"We must ask ourselves how important contemporary transient values will appear to us in fifty billion trillion millenia. It is a poor bargain which exchanges the eternal for the temporal, regardless of how much tinsel is used to make the temporal more attractive."-D.A. Carson, The Sermon on the Mount
II. Seek Light not ....
- Vs. 22-23
III. Love God not Money- Vs. 24
"Love of the world is egocentric, acquisitive, arrogant, ambitious, and absorbing, and leaves no place for any other kind of affections. Those who love the world serve and worship themselves every moment: it is their full-time job."-J.I. Packer, Hot Tub Religion, 87
“Those who live in the post- Christian West breathe every day the poison gas (so we may call it) of materialistic secularism…This damages our spiritual eyes, lungs, and heart, destroying both the vision of and passion for realities beyond the present world order of space and time. The combined force of these factors has made Western Christianity this-worldly in a way that can only be described as a radical distortion. For by and large, Christians no longer love for heaven, and therefore no longer understand, let alone practice, detachment from the world…We have no readiness or strength to renounce these objectives, for we have recast Christianity into a mold that stresses happiness above holiness, blessings here above blessings hereafter, health and wealth as God’s best gifts, and death…as the supreme disaster…The basic reason is that we have lost the New Testament two-world perspective that views the next life as more important than this one and understands life here as essentially preparation and training for life hereafter.”J.I. Packer- Hot Tub Religion, 90-91
