HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
Riches are not forever; and doth the crown endure to every generation? (Proverbs 27:24)
Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches and knoweth not who shall gather them. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
They do it to obtain a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible. We look not at the things which are seen but at the things which are not seen. To him, that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward. There is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day, and not to me only but unto all them also that love his appearing. A crown of glory that fadeth not away.
