Jesus said, "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal" (Matthew 6:19-20). For illustrative purposes, we could say that there is both a "Bank on Earth" and a "Bank in Heaven." We can make deposits in either bank. The "Bank on Earth" accepts and keeps our money. Our money will stay in this bank until we withdraw it or it's taken away at death. The "Bank in Heaven" receives our good deeds and works done in faith. With the "Bank in Heaven," we are investing for eternity. Through faith, God empowers us to store up treasures in heaven.
