Think Through It – Treasure

What do you want your life to be worth? I’m not talking about your net worth, I am talking about your life worth: your contribution to society. There is an old adage that says that you can only keep what you give. You see, it’s not what you take or what you hold onto that really matters in this life; it is what you give away. It is your contribution that really lasts. So what do you want your life to be worth? How are you contributing? How are you spending your time and energy? How are you spending your money? “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where it can never be taken away.”† I am reminded of the words of Jim Elliot, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot lose.”

† Matthew 6:19-20
