Heaven is an investment that lasts!
Gold is one of our most precious commodities. We invest in gold, horde gold, wear gold, work hard for more gold. We love gold and all that it represents! Yet none of it can we take with us when we die. Interestingly, the Bible states that the streets of Heaven are paved with pure gold. Think of it! Layers and layers of it, tons and tons of it, miles and miles of it stretching out in all directions beneath our feet! Gold in Heaven is really just asphalt! In other words, many things that are highly valued down here on earth will be temporary, inconsequential and insignificant in heaven. The promise of streets of gold in heaven reminds us to reexamine our priorities on earth and make sure that we are investing in things that will last…like our families, children, friends, neighbors…people.
