Timeless Truth from the Treasury of Scripture


But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Matthew 6:20-21, Luke 12:33-34

Parable of the Rich Fool

What’s at the end of our lives? “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own all the things you have prepared?’ So it is for the one who continues to store up and hoard possessions for himself, and is not rich [in his relationship] toward God.” Luke 12:20-21 We cannot take the things of this earth … Continue reading “Parable of the Rich Fool”

Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12


Jesus says “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greedlife does not consist in an abundance of possessions.” — Luke 12:15


10% of Christ’s teachings concern the topic of money.

There is a purpose to parables, why Jesus spoke about money so often.

There is a reason “Thou Shall Not Covet” is the Tenth commandment of the Old Testament [Deuteronomy 5:21, Exodus 20:17, Matthew 5:27-28]

Why, God? Lord, Lend us Your Wisdom!

Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. [Psalm 90:12]

Today how many of you would consider yourself content or well-off with your current financial situation?

Would you consider yourself to be somewhat of a greedy person?

Of those of you who say that they are “content” (not greedy), how many of you are currently in pursuit of more things?

Which of the 3 statements describes you?

I’m willing to bet many of you would say, “I’ve got too much!”

And you’re in the process of getting more — What sense does that make?

How then can we truly say ourselves satisfied and count our hearts content with what all that we have?

Indeed, inside all of us we do feel a deep desire, need, and an internal struggle to pursue a higher calling, something greater than the only offerings of this world!

Abiding within each living and breathing soul is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of man, being born again as children of God in the image of Christ’s creation. [John 3:5, Philippians 2:15-16]

He has hidden, deep inside our hearts, eternity — the treasure chest of everlasting life [Luke 12:34, Ecclesiastes 3:11Psalm 119:11].

Imagine! Eternity.

His Holy Word and Wisdom, His presence and power, a profound peace, the precious and perfect Truth, the treasure that is the gift of His One and Only Son Christ Jesus! To Jesus who is living in everlasting love within each of us forever. Amen! [Jeremiah 31:3]

“For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs” – 1st Timothy 6:10

have at its root cause [1st Timothy 6:10] a primordial problem of sin nature originating inwardly from a critical condition of the heart — all money issues at their core are actually cutting heart issues, God and Christ issues, in their inception [Psalm 51:1, Jeremiah 17:9, Matthew 5:27-28, James 1:15].

Cure in Christ: Soul’s solution & salvation!

God’s Sovereignty is our soul’s solution and sole sufficiency, the Wisdom of Jesus fulfills our soul and makes it whole!

Christ heals the holes of our hearts by entering into us by His Holy Spirit [Matthew 5:17-20], endowing us with His amazing grace, awesome power, all-abiding, all-encompassing, and almighty love. Allelujah!

Jesus is our sole sufficiency: Jesus is the joy of our hearts! Christ is our completeness and contentment! [2nd Corinthians 12:9; Philippians 4:13, 19; Nehemiah 8:10]

Tragedy starts when we fill the room and emptiness in our hearts, “broken cisterns that cannot hold water,” [Jeremiah 2:13] with just stuff, placeholders, possessions, and the other temporary material things of this world…

True treasure then begins with an accurate understanding, a reverent, awesome [Hebrews 12:28-29], high and holy view of God:

The Fear of the Lord.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge

Proverbs 1:7a

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Proverbs 9:10

I will praise You for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are Your works, and I know this full very well.

Psalm 139:14

Praying in peace and humility before our Lord, I ask each of you and for my own good’s sake to:

  1. Receive wisdom, comprehension, knowledge, discernment and understanding, might and strength by the power of the Holy Spirit [Ephesians 3:14]
  2. Help us put off past attachments for any material possessions that carry us away from the cross of Christ Jesus our beloved Messiah and our One True God [Matthew 4:10-11, Deuteronomy 6:13, Isaiah 43:18-20, Hebrews 2:1] and
  3. Heal our hearts by turning our eyes toward eternity, as we ascend up unto the Holy Hill of Mount Zion, City of the Living God, seeking and entering into the everlasting Kingdom of Heaven, humbling ourselves before His Holy Throne in our soul’s spiritual pilgrimage, that we may finally receive the prize God has called us heavenward in the Name of Lord Christ Jesus! [Philippians 3:14]

Dear reader, let us end our passage and close together with the Lord’s Holy Name in prayer

“Pray, then, in this way:

‘Our Father, who is in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.

‘Your kingdom come,
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

‘And forgive us our debts, as we have forgiven our debtors.

‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.


For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.

Amen.’

Matthew 6:9-13
