We’re sitting at Jesus’ feet listening to the greatest sermon ever preached: the Sermon on the Mount.
What’s your investment strategy? Here’s what Jesus suggests:
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
Billy Graham once said, “Give me five minutes with a person’s checkbook and I’ll tell you where their heart is.” What if Jesus were to sit down with you right now and go over your most recent bank statement? Would it show that you’re more focused on building up earthly treasures than heavenly ones?
In other words:
Are you serving God …
or something else?
