The Currency Of Heaven

Something to think about.

The Currency Of Heaven

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6:19-21 (KJV)

The underlying theme of these verses is currency, money, wealth anything of value. Notice that all the currency in verse 19 can be lost in one way or another. In verse 20 it is saying save a currency that will not be destroyed. When you consider that after the resurrection all will be made new, a new body a new earth, what currency can we possibly store in heaven? The answer is that which will exist forever, the soul of man. How many souls will be saved because of your efforts? Though we don’t have any way of knowing the answer to that question we know that the more we use our lives to bring people to Christ the greater will be our currency in heaven. There is no other action or result God will honor in heaven, the currency of God is the soul of man.

About Ruben

I am the owner of a custom furniture shop in Orlando, Florida. I had a heart attack back in 2010. As a result of complications from the heart attack I almost died . The road to recovery took about eighteen months and even now I still have issues to deal with. As a result of almost dying many things have changed. Most notably my concept of time. By that I mean that I am acutely aware of my mortality, not morbidly but realistically. Before the heart attack I thought I would make it to 70's, 80'S or as my mother into 90's but now I realize everyday is a gift. I don't take it for granted. That is why I write I have something to say and I want to say it, before I can't say it anymore.
