Honoring God with your money
August 26, 2011
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
I heard about a Christian man who lost everything he had during the Great Depression. He had been a very wealthy man, and in the years preceding his great loss, he’d given away hundreds of thousands of dollars to his church and to Christian causes.
So someone asked that man after he’d lost everything, “Aren’t you sorry that you gave away all of your money before you lost everything?”
He responded, “Not at all! The only thing that I really kept was what I gave away.”
It’s been said that our treasures can’t follow us to heaven, but they can precede us there. That’s why the Lord tells us to “lay up” treasures in heaven. It’s the most secure investment we could ever make!
When it comes to your treasures, where are they? Are they here on earth? Or are they making an eternal impact for God’s Kingdom? I don’t necessarily mean you have to give away every penny, but are you honoring God with everything you have?
Glorify God with your money and store up your treasures in heaven by honoring God with all you spend and all you give. That’s the only investment that’s guaranteed to reap tremendous rewards!
STORE UP YOUR TREASURES IN HEAVEN BY GLORIFYING GOD WITH EVERY PENNY YOU GIVE OR SPEND!

When life gets busy, it’s easy to miss your daily time with the Lord. Yet, what you think will save you time actually ends up sapping you of the power you need!
That’s why I want to send you a copy of my popular 365-day devotional book called A Daily Encounter with God.This powerful tool contains a Bible-focused reading for each day that will help you plug into Jesus Christ—your only true source of power.
Along with the devotional, I’d like to send you a copy of my I Am Second story on CD. It’s my prayer that my story will be of encouragement to you or someone you know!
