God: demonstrates the methodology….
Matthew 6:19-21 (KJV) “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also”.
For many of us it is a way of life we have grown accustomed: we work very hard and we plan and lay aside for our families and for the things we want to accomplish in the years to come; the vacation, the homes, the travels and the future of our kids: we want to plan for it.
In as much as it is wise and prudent to have such investment, many of us who are wise in this manner unfortunately have been saving for other to enjoy.
It’s not a sin to be a wise steward over what God has blessed you with, but there needs to be a balance and inclusion of that thing which is most important: your spiritual life. Let not the tangible things in this world preclude you from getting what is to come.
This life is consuming, but you have the control: prioritize.
