Scripture: Matthew 6:19-21
19 Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Scripture Memory: Hebrews 1:1-2
“In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.”
Journey: Eternity is the concept of never ending time. Time. Never-ending. Never. That’s a long time! The Bible teaches that eternity stretches before us. One day we will leave this earth and live in a state that is eternal. You really have to sit down and think about that one – even if eternity is often mentioned, it is so foreign a reality, it takes very serious thought to sink in.
Now, here’s a question: If when you pass into eternity you are not going to be able to take ANY THING with you, how does that affect the way you view and use material resources in this life? It should make a difference right? Plain and simple, what we’ll be discussing today is that the way we think about and handle “stuff” reveals how clearly we understand the realities of this life and the concept of life in eternity.
Looking forward to the future,
