We Can’t Take it With Us!

TreasuresinHeavenThe first time I saw this image, I thought it was a bit morbid.  In fact, it is morbid.  It’s showing a hearse carrying away a deceased person with all of his earthly possessions being hauled behind him.  Yet, the absurdity of this image compels us to almost immediately reevaluate the things we perceive as valuable.

Though this image appears smaller on the blog than I would like, if you click on the image, it shows in tiny print the powerful scripture that directly contradicts the image:

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy and thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, your heart will be also” (Matthew 6: 19-21).

In short, we can’t take it with us!! I hope you were blessed by this today.
