In a world that measures success by financial accumulation, we know that the ultimate treasure is one that is stored up for ourselves in heaven, “where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal (Matthew 6:20).” Though, this does not excuse reckless irresponsibility earthly wealth, it does mean that money can become an expression of greed and fleshly desires. Guarding ourselves from the appeals of temporary treasure should be of utmost concern as Paul explains that because of it, “many have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows” (1 Timothy 6:10). Learning to steward our money responsibly and freely is a difficult undertaking. But, these resources can equip us with sure-footedness in approaching this slippery-slope. In yielding our finances to Him who can do immeasurably more, we can trust that our investment here on Earth will reap eternal dividends.
