Departing this world in the final exodus

Lay not up treasures on earth but lay up for yourself treasures in Heaven.

Brethren, soon, very soon we will be departing this world in the final exodus on our way to the Promised Land.

What you have laid up for yourself on earth you will leave behind and it will be forever lost.

What you have laid up in Heaven you will never lose.

Brethren, you cannot serve two masters.

If you seek to be rich on earth you cannot have treasure in Heaven.

If you seek to be rich in Heaven you will no doubt be poor on earth.

Where your treasure is, your heart will be also.

If your treasure is on earth your heart will be devoid of the love, joy and peace of God.

If your treasure is in Heaven you will overflow with love, joy and peace.

These are the things that really count.
