Beautiful Garbage

Adrian Rogers

Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth…but lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven.” – Matthew 6:19-20

Years ago I read about a man who had a rather ingenious way of getting rid of his garbage. He would gift-wrap it, put it out on the curb in front of his house, and invariably someone driving by would see that wrapped box, stop, and pick it up. And the man would be behind the curtains, watching those people drive away with their gift-wrapped garbage!

So many times that’s what the devil does. He just takes the things of this world and wraps them up so beautifully. But what we get is not treasure…it turns out to be trash.

Don’t let the devil cheat you—don’t cling to the worthless things of this world, but use your resources and energies wisely to invest in souls and store up eternal treasuresin Heaven!

Add up everything you have that money can’t buy and death can’t take away. The sum will reveal to you how rich you really are.
