“But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.” (Revelation 2:25).
The other day I asked a Jewish coworker how it was that his countrymen were so successful in acquiring wealth. “Ah,” said he, “we do not make more money than other people, but we keep more.” Beloved, let us look out this day for spiritual pickpockets and spiritual leakage. Let us “lose nothing of what we have wrought, but receive a full reward”; and, as each day comes and goes, let us put away in the savings bank of eternity its treasures of grace and victory, and so be conscious from day to day that something real and everlasting is being added to our eternal fortune.
It may be but a little, but if we only economize all that God gives us, and pass it on to His keeping, when the close shall come we shall be amazed to see how much the accumulated treasures of a well-spent life have laid up on high, and how much more He has added to them by His glorious investment of the life committed to His keeping.
I couldn’t understand how he was so precise in his answer, but I found out that as in the natural so it is in the spiritual. The more treasures we lay up in heaven is better for us. It took me back to the men who were given certain amounts of talents and how they invested what they were given. We are given talents also, and what are we doing with them? One day the Lord will return and question us about our investments. You cannot say the brother made you hid your talents, or he didn’t give me the gift, but he gave it to another? Did you hide your gift because you preferred to gossip and live a life in the world to please your friends? Brethren God is watching and will get you one day.
Oh, how the days are telling! Oh, how precious these golden hours will seem sometime! God help us to make the most of them now.
