Treasure in Heaven Illustration

1. Earthly currency is useless in heaven.

It’s like when I came back from Brazil. I received some Brazilian currency (reals) for my expense there but I carried some coins back with me. Now those reals are useless here, I cannot even buy a pack of chewing gum with them. That currency is not accepted here but rather must be exchanged into an acceptable currency. It is the same in heaven. All the money we have acquired or spent on ourselves has no value. In heaven the only currency that counts is what you have invested for heaven while on earth.

Matthew 6:19-20 19“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.

2. Story of stolen FIFA World Cup.

The 2104 FIFA World Cup was won by Germany in Brazil. The cup is made of 18 carat gold costing $15 billion US. Do you know that the world cup was stolen twice in 1966 and 1983. Presently, the winning team is given the world cup for the celebrations but soon replaced with a replica because of the fear of theft. What Germany took back home is a replica of the true world cup.
