OPEN HEAVEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TODAY, THURSDAY 6TH FEBRUARY 2020 : HEAVENLY INVESTMENTS

THEME: HEAVENLY INVESTMENTS (Daily Devotional For Thursday 6th February 2020 By Pastor E. A. Adeboye)

MEMORY VERSE: Matthew 13:44

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. 

READ: MATTHEW 6:19-21 (KJV)

19. Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal;

20. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal;

21. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.


MESSAGE


The problem with some 21st century Christians is that they do not know the value of heavenly investments, which yield dividends both in this life and eternally.

This is unfortunate because they focus more on earthly investments and this is the exact opposite of our Lord’s injunction in our Bible text today.

Earthly investments are prone to corruption. Jesus explains in the parable of the rich fool that choosing earthly investments over heavenly ones is not wise.

“…then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.” – Luke 12:20-21

The Bible also says:

“Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.” – Proverbs 23:5

A story was told of a young man who was attacked by hoodlums on his way home, the very night he gave his life to Jesus Christ.

They asked him, “Your money or your life: which do you want to surrender?” To their amazement, the young man said,

“I am sorry, I do not have either of the two things you are asking for!” The gang leader, out of curiosity at the response of the young man asked “What do you mean you do not have life or money to surrender?”

The young man replied, “I am just coming from the Church where the pastor persuaded me to give my life to Christ and I did. At the end of the service, I was also asked to give my substance to God’s work and I emptied my pockets for the work of Jesus who saved me without any charge!”


The leader said “I see, because you have amused me this evening, I will let you go, but next time, always remember to reserve something for us!”

As funny as this story may sound, it carries an eternal truth: Investing in the Kingdom of God is the best decision you can ever make as it yields both earthly and heavenly rewards.
