Verse of the Day: Treasures in Heaven

July 16, 2007

Sorry about the lack of Verse of the Day’s in the past couple days. I’ve been at the Joyce Meyer conference in L.A. Here’s one for today!

21 Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”

Matthew 19:21 (NKJV)

From the Life Application Bible:

Should all believers sell everything they own? No. We are responsible to care for our own needs and the needs of our families so as not to be a burden on others. We should, however, be willing to give up anything if God asks us to do so. This kind of attitude allows nothing to come between us and God and keeps us from using our God-given wealth selfishly. If you are comforted by the fact that Christ did not tell all his followers to sell all their possessions, then you may be too attached to what you have.
