What Are You Taking to Heaven?
Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine in the very heart of your house, your children like olive plants all around your table. Behold, thus shall the man be blessed who fears the Lord. Psalm 128:3-4
The greatest wealth you have is not in the bank. If you have children, your greatest wealth is your children. “Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them. They shall not be ashamed, but shall speak with their enemies in the gate.” Psalm 127:4-5.
I’ve heard it said, “Children make a rich man poor.” They've got it exactly backward. They make a poor man rich. Friend, no one, rich or poor, can take their money to Heaven. But I'm taking my children to Heaven.
Thank God for a Christian family. Thank God for the things that really matter! “Godliness with contentment is great gain” (1 Timothy 6:6). That godliness comes when we give our hearts to Jesus Christ and trust Him as our Lord and Savior.
