Matt. 6:21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
I recently had a conversation about money with one of the young men that I mentor. We talked about inheriting a lot of money and what we would do with it. I suggested that I would try to live off of ten percent and use the rest to serve others. He wasn’t seeing it. I wish I could say my comment was because of my nobility but it wasn’t. I read about men that choose to live life that way. Serving others seems to give them there greatest joy. All of them are highly successful business men and they understand investment very well.
As I read the portion of scripture surrounding this verse, I recognized just how wise they were and are. Invest in self indulgence and selfishness and you have no guarantee, you may lose it all. Invest in God’s will and taking care of His children and your investment has guaranteed returns eternally. Now that’s an investment plan I can’t turn down.
