THE WISEST INVESTMENT YOU WILL EVER MAKE
“Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and should give happily to those in needs; always being ready to share with others whatever God has given them. By doing this they will be storing up real treasure for themselves in heaven — it is the only safe investment for eternity! And they will be living a fruitful Christian life down here as well.” (1 Timothy 6:18-19 TLB)
Your time on earth is an opportunity to build an eternal treasury for yourself in heaven. Where there are no economic crises; share prices don’t fluctuate and stocks don’t crash nor depreciate. How? The bible says “use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.” Luke 16:9
Generosity here on earth is a great investment in heaven. Every time you are generous with the poor, a friend, or a neighbour, or for religious cause, God says you are storing up treasure in the bank of Heaven. Think about it. By the time you spend 80 years or 100 years to be nice on earth, you won’t say you didn’t have a long life, then you will spend trillions of uncountable years in eternity. Where do you need to have the biggest account?
You don’t get to take anything out of this world other than your deeds during your lifetime. Salvation is by grace. But God wants to reach others through you on earth while you are here. No one gets to transit into another class until after they have passed their exams. You must pass your character/maturity test. You cannot take your worldly resources with you. Someone said mortuaries sell burial suits and they are for people who want to be buried in a suit but don’t have one. And the difference in burial suits is there are no pockets in them! It’s true! You won’t need them, because you can’t take anything in it with you. But my friend! You can send it on ahead.
There’s no greater investment than the Kingdom of God. When you help other people with your time, your money, your resources; whatever you’ve got… you are actually making an investment in Heaven. Your investment is protected in Heaven. It pays good rates. There are great dividends and no risks.
You think you can get that kind of investment anywhere else? It’s the best deal you could ever dream of.
1 Oh God of Dr. Chris Okafor, open my case file and locate me, open my financial file and connect me internationally in Jesus name.
2 Every where they took my case file to, in the east, west, north or south of their witchcraft coven, let the chief priest/or priestess and the strongman/ or woman that sold the case file catch fire and die in Jesus name.
3 Every padlock that the enemies have used to padlock my finance, my asset, my business, job, let them be broken in Jesus name.
Liberation thought: Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
