Eternal Currency

I've been seeing lots of commercials about buying gold, sometimes silver. The advertisements manage to strike a little bit of fear in my heart when I watch the news and see how the value of our dollar is slip-sliding away.

And while it's true that every prudent citizen should be considering how to survive should our country go bankrupt, even our physical survival isn't the ultimate state of well-being.

The Bible contains many passages about money and treasures and inheritance. God wants us to work hard, invest wisely, save with discipline. But in spite of all our careful living, God is our supreme bank account.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade (italics mine) -- kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time." (1 Peter 1:3-5)

No change in tax law, no change in administration, no calamity, no demise of country can ever take your inheritance away if you belong to Jesus Christ. What you have --what God has given you -- will never "perish, spoil or fade."

What a comfort in uncertain times.

"Praise God from Whom all blessings flow,
Praise God, all creatures here below,
Praise Him above, ye heavenly hosts,
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
