An other worldly approach:

Fact: There is “not” one verse in the New Testament which speaks of “monetary success” (hoarding wealth/money) as one of the “goals” of a believer though many preachers falsely mean it otherwise ‘speaking in their flesh’.

Conclusion: Hence, a believer is only required to share the treasures of this world with the poor easily so that he might gain heavenly treasures.

That’s why it’s written (a hidden wisdom of God in ‘acquiring heavenly treasures’ instead – read the words “do not” in the verse below; ‘do not’ means ‘do not’ – not an option for an obedient believer):

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.” – Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 6:19 – 20)


“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” – Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 6:21)


Indeed, the above will sound strange to the world especially since it doesn’t offer “security”.

But it’s written that:

“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”;” (1 Corinthians 3:19)

Thus, we have diametrically opposite goals in life at times (His “narrow path” is what only a few have travelled).

P/S 2:

Note that the ‘same’ phrase “do not” is taken more seriously in commands such as “do not commit adultery” or “do not murder”. So, are we choosing in the flesh which “do not’s” to obey and which ones to take lightly? You decide.
