Treasure in heaven!
Scripture reading for March 19: Luke 12, Psalm 56, Proverbs 25
Key Scriptures: Luke 12:32-34 “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is there will your heart be also.”
Jesus, calling His disciples, ‘little flock’, instructed them in the amazing grace and provision of God, His Father. The Father delighted to give His Son’s followers the kingdom of heaven. It was a gift of His mercy and grace. Jesus told them that an appropriate faith response to this great gift would be to give away what they had here to the poor and needy. This demonstration of faith would open up to them the permanent treasury in heaven. They would find all their needs met in Christ Jesus and His amazing kingdom!
Faith Confession: Jesus, thank You for including me in Your flock! Help me to be generous with what You have blessed me with here so that I will have true riches in You in heaven. You are my Treasure in heaven.
Psalm 56:13 “For You have delivered my soul from death, yes, my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of Life.”
