"In this way laying up for themselves [the riches that endure forever as]"

Matthew 6:19-20 (Amplified Bible)

Do not gather and heap up and store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust and worm consume and destroy, and where thieves break through and steal.

But gather and heap up and store for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust nor worm consume and destroy, and where thieves do not break through and steal;

Luke 12:33-34 (Amplified Bible)

Sell what you possess and give donations to the poor; provide yourselves with purses and handbags that do not grow old, an unfailing and inexhaustible treasure in the heavens, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

1 Timothy 6:18-19 (Amplified Bible)

[Charge them] to do good, to be rich in good works, to be liberal and generous of heart, ready to share [with others],

In this way laying up for themselves [the riches that endure forever as] a good foundation for the future, so that they may grasp that which is life indeed.

The issue is our heart, if our heart is focused on the riches and things of this world, we're dead with GOD. But on the other hand, if GOD is our life, and the focus of our heart, then everything will be provided by GOD to us.

Psalms 37:4 (Amplified Bible)

Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.

What makes you happy? Money or the LORD?

Matthew 6:24 (Amplified Bible)

No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stand by and be devoted to the one and despise and be against the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (deceitful riches, money, possessions, or whatever is trusted in).
