3-Week Series: Double Blessing

Sermon Illustrations

When I was in college, most of the time I took as many classes, as many credit hours as they would let me take. I wanted to get through with school as soon as possible because I wanted to get on with life. My mother used to tell me, “your college years are part of life,” and I used to answer, “No, they are just preparing me for what follows.”

Some people forget that school is not the goal of life, and they become perpetual students, never finishing, never moving on, never using what they learn. Sadly, we often forget that life on earth is not our goal. This life, this world, is just school to prepare us for what follows.

In this passage Jesus says, “Don’t get wrapped up in your life here. This is not the end of it all. Store your treasures where they will do you some good.“
