“But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.” – Matt 6:20
Saving, in order to “lay up for a rainy day”, is universally commended. By just so much more as the object is higher, is it commendable to economize in order to “lay up treasures in heaven.” We really have–only what we have used well for Christ. When one has learned this secret of banking in heaven, one has the true philosopher’s stone which turns everything to gold. The simplest possessions, are transformed into eternal treasures. A threadbare coat becomes a robe of righteousness, a last year’s bonnet a crown of glory, when worn in self-denying economy for Christ’s sake. We should live always for the highest and best things!
