Is Heavenly Treasure Bitcoin?

There is a section in Matthew 6 where Jesus starts talking about what we should really live for. What Jesus says is, "Don’t store up for yourselves treasures on earth... But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven" (Matthew 6:19–20). Which got me thinking, what is heavenly treasure? Upon a little research, I ran across this trustworthy satire website called The Babylon Bee. They went straight to the heavenly source and asked, "What is heavenly treasure?" Come to find out, it's bitcoin.

“Moth and rust can’t destroy Bitcoin, and thieves can’t break in and steal it, because it’s abstract imaginary internet money, so it’s perfect for our purposes,” said a heavenly representative to the Babylon Bee.

Ok, none of that is true, but it's pretty funny. Just a few months ago people were getting rich and going crazy over Bitcoin, but today... not so much. While moths and rust may not destroy Bitcoin, over 50% devaluation in a few days sure put a hurting on the cryptocurrency. While Bitcoin isn't quite dead, and it may have its uses, it's no heavenly treasure.

But the questions remain: What is heavenly treasure, where does it come from, and how do you get it? This Sunday we're talking about reclaiming our finances through a foundational look at what holds our hearts; i.e., what do we desire most? Through that, we'll discover what true heavenly treasure is (And I promise it's not any kind of cryptocurrency).

Join us as we discuss how to reclaim your finances in a world of "broke." We'll dig deep and also give some really practical tools for gospel-centered, Jesus focused finances.

In Christ,
