"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 V20

"Now godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out." - 1 Timothy 6 V6, 7

With our human nature our tendency is always to store up enough for today and for future. Then a time comes when our focus is on our belongings rather than the Creator who gave us everything. The Israelites who stored up excess manna soon found out that their efforts in gathering the excess manna was a waste. The Scripture teaches us that we should invest our time and efforts for the glory of God, and we should keep Christ the centre of our life. The investment we make on earth for Christ will last forever in heaven. Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
