  • Earthly Treasures!!!!

    Mt 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

    Deuteronomy 28:8-13.
    8 The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
    9 The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways.
    10 And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee.
    11 And the LORD shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers to give thee.
    12 The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.
    13 And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:

      FF, the old covenant prosperity promises was for Israel. Are you under the Law of Moses?

        I don't understand what's wrong with God blessing one with material prosperity.

            There's nothing wrong with it as far as I can see ( I'm not one to tell God He is wrong) It's not about how much money we hold, but it is about how much our money has a hold on us!!

              Yes we can agree that love of money is a problem and not the money itself...

                Nothing at all. We've all been blessed far beyond our needs. even unbelievers.

                But I have to say, since we've simplified our lives and got rid of a bunch of stuff, it's been a much more peaceful and happy home.

                  Heb 13:5 Your lifestyle must be free from the love of money, being content with what you have. For he himself has said, "I will never desert you, and I will never abandon you."
                  Heb 13:6 So then, we can say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What will man do to me?"

                  1Ti 6:3 If anyone advocates a different doctrine and does not agree with sound words, those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and with the doctrine conforming to godliness,
                  1Ti 6:4 he is conceited and understands nothing; but he has a morbid interest in controversial questions and disputes about words, out of which arise envy, strife, abusive language, evil suspicions,
                  1Ti 6:5 and constant friction between men of depraved mind and deprived of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain.
                  1Ti 6:6 But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.
                  1Ti 6:7 For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either.
                  1Ti 6:8 If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content.

                  1Ti 6:9 But those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction.
                  1Ti 6:10 For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
                  1Ti 6:11 But flee from these things, you man of God, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance and gentleness.

                    But we are not to labour for that which perisheth, according to Jesus.

                    Jn 6:27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

                    Mt 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

                    Is that in itself a command?

                            John 6:27 is probably saying "don't focus on trying to save yourself" or "don't be anxious about your life (c.f. Matthew 6:25)"
                            Matthew 6:19 is probably saying "don't love anything else above God"
