What is Your Treasure?…

Read: Proverbs 10-12
Marked: Proverbs 10:2, Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, But righteousness delivers from death.

Contrary to what some may believe, death is not the end. There is life after death. But Jesus said what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? (Matthew 16:21). In Matthew 6:19-20 we are warned not to lay up treasures on earth but to lay up treasure in heaven.

Treasures of wickedness only earn us judgment and result in what the Bible calls the second death; eternity in hell. But treasures of righteousness deliver us from this second death.

Jesus said where our treasures are so is our heart (Matthew 6:21). Where is your heart on the matter? What treasure are you storing up?
