Eyes on Heaven –

Read Lk 12-14 – Have you ever heard the saying, “They’re so heavenly minded, they’re no earthly good?” It’s cute but I’m not sure it’s accurate. Jesus reminds us over and over again about looking to our future in heaven with Him. And He does this by drawing our attention to the fact that our actions on earth have direct consequences to our rewards in heaven. Things like, don’t fear, store up treasure in heaven, put the kingdom first, don’t worry, be on the alert for His return, love the marginalized, etc… You can see that this list of earthly “dos” will directly impact our eternal rewards. I’m not talking about getting into heaven (Salvation), that is by grace and grace alone. I’m talking about our treasure in heaven. Does the prospect of reward in heaven motivate our day to day activities? Are we teaching people about heaven the way Jesus did?
