Treasures in Heaven

Pat Neff, one-time governor of Texas and later president of Baylor University, once said, “All my life I’ve heard preachers tell me to lay up treasures in heaven, but none of them ever told me how to do it. I had to figure it out on my own.

Give yourselves to feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, healing the sick, and caring for the needy in every way. Oh yes, and share the good news that Jesus saves. That way they can enjoy eternity with you. Where are you investing your treasure (your time and resources) today?
