A promise from God

     

A promise from God is worth more than all the treasures of the world and can be relied upon more than money.
Money is a promissary note backed by the resources of a country and can be used to buy earthly things.
A promise from God is backed by the resources of The Kingdom of Heaven and can be used to buy Heavenly things.
Earthly things are temporal and only last a little while.
Heavenly things are everlasting and may be kept forever.
Labor not to acquire things of earth that are here today and gone tomorrow.
But rather labor to acquire things of Heaven that shall never pass away.
Where your treasure is, so shall your heart be also.
Let your heart be stayed on God.
