Jesus Christ told us that we should store our treasures in Heaven where thieves cannot break in to steal. Almost all Christians, if not all, have rewards in Heaven, but unfortunately, many people are going to miss their rewards because they are not going to make it to Heaven because of sin. Giving is good and should be taught and encouraged. Giving helps us to focus on Heaven (Matthew 6:21). As we give let’s work on ourselves so that we can enter Heaven to reap. As we store our treasures in Heaven let us also make every effort to make it to Heaven.
Pastors should also be concerned about the salvation of the people they teach to give. If they don’t show concerns even when they know that their Church members are not going to heaven it is deception. Men of God should not just teach their members how to give and sow seed in order to reap their rewards in Heaven but they should also teach their members how to be saved and make it to Heaven because it is only those who make it to Heaven that will receive the rewards of their labours.
“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.” (Matthew 6:19-21)
