SORRY, I CAN’T DO THAT AND NEITHER CAN MY PARTNER! Jesus said, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21; Luke 12:34). I am going to put my own twist to this statement by way of application and say, ‘where you have invested your treasure with your heart, there you will keep expending time and energy so you leave behind the most effective work of God that others can carry on in any culture, any time, with any resources and under any conditions’.
For the next several days, I want to pursue this subject and challenge you to examine your heart and ask where you are placing treasure that will last for eternity. Oh, by the way, there are only two options for any treasure: 1) natural decay, consumption, or 2) eternal investment that yields a thousand percent.
