We hear much about riches today and how to become rich, but if we are not rich toward God, our earthly wealth will not mean a thing, as Jesus once taught,

Then He spoke a parable to them, saying: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded plentifully. And he thought within himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no room to store my crops?’ So he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry.” But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?’ So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God” (Luke 12.16–21).

We seek riches that we might be able to get whatever we want and that we might have a secure future, but those riches do nothing for securing our eternal future. If you want to secure your eternity with God, become rich toward Him!
