The scripture for today is Proverbs 10:2
Proverbs 10:2 Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, but righteousness delivers from death.
The treasures of wickedness do not profit because whatever benefit that is derived from them is fleeting and ultimately amounts to nothing. Jesus said, “For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?” Matthew 16:26 Eternal life is the only treasure worth seeking and that life is only offered by God. No amount of money can purchase it, it is the gift of God to all who will receive it through Jesus Christ.
Why would anyone want to spend their lives accumulating that which does them no good in the end? As we make Christ the Lord of our lives, choosing to live by faith, we will not fall into the trap of deception and the delusion of chasing wealth. God provides those who are His with the necessities of life and a life that is dependent upon Him is a life that is full and fulfilled. Fulfillment is not the result of what you have but rather who you are. If you are a child of God, you have treasure in heaven even if you possess very little on earth. This earth will soon pass away along with all that it contains. The treasures of heaven are eternal and those treasures are worth more than all the combined riches contained on this planet. If we seek the righteousness that God provides, He will sustain us by His grace. “The LORD will not allow the righteous soul to famish, But He casts away the desire of the wicked.” Proverbs 10:3
God bless you as you continue in His service.
