Invest in God’s Kingdom

In the time of Solomon, silver was abundant. In fact, “nothing was made of silver, because silver was considered of little value” (1 Kings 10:21). Solomon used vast amounts of gold to construct the temple and buildings. As people brought him gifts of silver and gold, Solomon placed them in the temple treasuries (1 Kings 7:51).

When he considered this vast supply, Solomon could not have imagined that within a few short years, this gold and silver would be gone. His great-grandson Asa used this metal to forge an alliance with Syria. Asa won a short-term victory, but it cost him the gold and silver that had been so carefully secured. The gold and silver that once seemed so abundant soon were gone.

The things of this world can seem to be so substantial, permanent, and valuable. How easily we can put our faith in the world’s money and possessions. But the Bible reminds us how quickly these things can lose their value and how rapidly material things can disappear.

Don’t put your faith in this world’s gold and silver. As Jesus said, don’t store up treasures on earth “where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.” Instead, store treasures in Heaven. Realize that “whereyour treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:19-21).

Today, invest your time, talents, and treasures in God’s kingdom. Focus on eternal riches.
