God has blessed us with His Word. Through His Word, God has given us hope for a resurrection to life, reigning with Him in eternity. This world’s riches will wither away, but God’s riches in heaven will never wither away. We will inherit all things through Christ Jesus.
“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.”
We are dust and to dust we shall return. None of what we gain in this world can we take to the grave. Therefore, why strive for perishable items as the rich do, when the imperishable is what we ought to desire? God has provided a way of escape through His Son Jesus.
No manner of riches will save us from death. Likewise, wealth will not save the rich from the grave. Gaining the whole world will not spare us from God’s judgment. Yet, our salvation rests in God, who will raise us from the dead and reward us with everlasting life.
What manner of person shall we be, knowing that all things in this world will perish? We ought to love God and love others as we would ourselves. True wealth comes from things unseen. Be kind always. Be patient always. Strive for eternal riches.
