Giving to God: The Value of the Kingdom



Matthew 13:44-50          February 9, 2014          Link for audio/video/document

Decisions are difficult because every choice carries with it an element of risk and cost. Every choice we make is based on what we value; every decision carries with it consequences. Choosing treasures of this world may not cost us much in this life, but it will cost us at the end of this life. Choosing treasures of the kingdom of heaven may cost us much in this life, but the value of that cost is not worth comparing to the glory that will be revealed to us through Jesus Christ. When we give to God first as He has given to us in Jesus, all other giving is then joyfully easy - because the greatest treasure and most joyful treasure we can ever know is Jesus Christ!
