“LAY UP FOR YOURSELVES”
Money Has Wings
"Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom. Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven." Proverbs 23:4-5
- Instruction: "Labour not to be rich" v4
- Instruction: "cease from thine own wisdom" v4
- Question?: "Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not?" v5
- Wisdom to ponder: "for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven" v5
Note this phrase in v5 (please read carefully) - "riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven." Now watch this - "they fly away as an eagle toward heaven." What does that mean? Simply, the way we spend our money on earth will testify about our lives on Judgment Day and we will thereby be rewarded or stripped of rewards or even kept out of the kingdom (Lk. 16:19-31, James 2 :1-7; 5:1-6; etc.). The usage of our money is a direct reflection of the priorities of our hearts (Matt. 6:21).
Our LORD instructs us to lay up treasure, but in Heaven not here in this temporal world where the dollar will soon be obsolete, superseded by rewards earned during this earthly life.
"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 (lots) in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:" Matthew 6:19-20
Saint of the Most High, are you going to look back in eternity and deeply regret the opportunities God gave you in this fleeting life that you passed up? - to bless another and send forward eternal rewards?
“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:21
Your investments into God's kingdom work in this short life are truly safe, secure, life-giving, and eternal. No one can take them away.
Saint of God, Jesus Christ is all-knowing and sees everything and will reward every good deed or work done in His name and love.

The Laid Down Life
The creation and development of Scripture-intensive resources to build up Christ’s body, including leaders, and, the creation and distribution of evangelistic tools for the winning of lost souls into the kingdom of God. These are supplied to Gospel workers around the world. Preach, warn, and teach the truth (Col. 1:28). One of the central thrusts of our calling and service to Christ is to prayerfully, biblically, and diligently safeguard the souls of His people from deception by establishing in their hearts the final authority and eternal blessings associated with being personally rooted and grounded in His Word and in His love (Prov. 22:17-21; Jn. 5:39; Acts 20:20-32; Phil. 3:1; 2 Tim. 2:15;3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:3-4,12-21; 1 Jn. 2:24-33; 4:1-3; 2 Jn. 7-11; Rev. 2:1-5).
