(Matt 6:19-21) (Mark10:21-22)
It is very clear from Jesus’ teaching that eternal treasures never lose their worth. They can never be spoiled or stolen. We can stockpile them by living according to the will and ways of Jesus.
In the gospel of Mark, we read that the Lord tested the rich young ruler’s heart when He asked him to sell all that he had, give it to the poor, and follow Him. The ruler’s response surely revealed what He really valued. See verses 21-22.
It’s very easy to become overly enamoured with earth side stuff, but when you make a choice to follow Jesus, He’ll show you the joy of collecting eternal treasures. Nothing on earth can compare! So ponder this SLM:-
“Hold tightly to what is eternal and loosely to what is temporal!”
