My Treasure (CD)
Matthew 6:19-21 - Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Jesus spoke on money and possessions on several occasions, giving advice and counsel on what constitutes a right relationship with these earthly treasures. Your money and your heart are inextricably intertwined. Your relationship to mammon and your relationship with the Father are like two ends of a see-saw. When one goes up, the other goes down. The love of the Father is not compatible with the love of money.
Be prepared to ask yourself the hard questions: What do I value most? What would I most hate to lose? What affords me the greatest pleasure in life? How do you know that you have an appropriate attitude toward our money and a right relationship with the Father? The Word of God is the revealer of hearts and motives. Submit to God’s Word and allow Him to bring you into victory and freedom in this area of your life.
Psalm 24:1 tells us that the Earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. Since all things are God’s, we are merely stewards of all that we possess. We act as custodians of what He has placed in our care, and we are to wisely administer and expand the Master’s estate because we are accountable to Him. We also have clear-cut incentives and motivations to be wise stewards—our eternal treasure and crowns!
This series will instruct and guide you on how to be a good steward and manage your possessions in a way that pleases God. As you do this, you will be heaping up for yourselves treasures in Heaven!
