Be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always be ready to share with others. By doing this, you will be storing up your treasure as a good foundation for the future so that all may experience true life.  

1 Timothy 6:18-19 (NLT)

When we use our resources to honor the Lord, we are laying up treasures in Heaven, not only for ourselves, but for others.  By our acts of generosity, we point others toward Christ.   We experience a more rewarding and fulfilling life on this earth. Nothing makes life more satisfying than obedience to God’s Word.  Follow Christ, read and live His Word!   When you do, you are investing your wealth in the souls of people who will greet and thank you when you arrive in Heaven.  Martin Luther said it this way, "People go through three conversions: their head, their heart and their wallet.  Unfortunately, not all at the same time."
