Give and you shall have treasure in heaven
It’s better to give than to receive. Easy to say but often hard to do, as we see in the case of the rich young man. Sometimes we get attached to what we possess, getting our satisfaction and sense of security and even a sense of identity from them.
Jesus invites us today to give up this attachment and desire instead the much better treasure —His eternal kingdom. Lord help us to detach ourselves from worldly things that will not last.
