The Best Investment
I love this teaching from John Wesley—"If your income goes up, raise your standard of giving, not your standard of living." Remember, you can't take it with you ... but you can send it on ahead and you can use your money in this life to make a difference in the next life. How short-sighted it is to waste our money here on earth by spending it lavishly. Hey, would you rather be wealthy here for a few decades or wealthy there FOREVER? The best investment you could ever make is in furthering the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Remember, Heaven is not the same for every Christian. Salvation is a free gift, but rewards are gained or lost at the judgment seat of Christ based on what you did for Jesus with your time, your talent, and your treasure. So use all that you have for His glory, because that brings real hope.
