Godís goodness and love toward his children is so great, as though the sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ could not be the extent of our reward, He has provided treasure for His children in Heaven.
We will first look at the scriptures and compare earthly treasure with Heavenly treasure.
Luke 16:25† But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
Revelation 3:17† Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
Proverbs 11:4† Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.
Treasures that cannot endure will bring sorrow to the heart; we must not give the heart to earthly treasure.
Matthew 6:24† No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
11:26† Esteeming the reproach of Christ
greater riches than the treasures in
1 Timothy 6:17† Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
Psalms 62:10† Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
Mark 4:19† And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.
1 Timothy 6:9† But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
