Investing in Our Eternal Home

Why do we focus on material things in a place where we are here just for a short time? God has entrusted us with blessings of many things that we are to steward.

When you check into a hotel room for a long weekend or on a week-long vacation, do you make changes to the hotel room? Do you hire a construction crew to replace the shower, put in beautiful marble countertops, replace the carpet with oak flooring, paint the walls a different color, and add a den? Of course you don’t. Why not? Because you are only there for a short while. Why do we do that to our earthly home? Why do we focus on material things in a place where we are here just for a short time? God has entrusted us with blessings of many things that we are to steward. Should we be buying million dollar homes? Should we be buying $400,000 sports cars? Should we be getting plastic surgery? The answer really is between you and God. Are you obedient first to the Kingdom? Are you caring for the sick, the needy, the widows and orphans before your own materialistic needs? Should we not be preparing our heavenly home by storing our treasures in Heaven? I urge you to answer these questions and understand that we are here for a short while, but eternity is forever!

1 Chronicles 29:15 We are here for only a moment, visitors and strangers in the land as our ancestors were before us. Our days on earth are like a passing shadow, gone so soon without a trace.
