"But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:" (Matt. 6:19-20).  Our Lord Jesus frequently warned us against trying to hoard wealth in our temporary home on Earth.  Often much time and money is spent on ourselves so that we may live comfortably on this side of heaven.  We plan for advancement, education, investment, vacation, and retirement.  Yet as Christians, we would be wise to also consider eternal investments concerning our time, talents, and possessions.  As we enter into the new year of 2017 may we as pilgrims cast our eyes upon our future home in heaven and press on to impact others for Christ around the globe. Consider partnering with ODBM to make eternal investments for God’s glory.
