Matthew 19:21 – Jesus said to him, “If you wish to be perfect, go sell your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
Nah, that whole “you will have treasure in heaven” thing is just a sham. Do you actually believe that? Treasure in heaven. Ha! Are you sure that this treasure is better than living in luxury on earth? Are you sure that it is better than sex? Are you sure it is better than the high of drugs and buzz of alcohol? What is this treasure you promise me? How can it be better than what I want and get now? What if I just want to eat, drink, and be merry because tomorrow we die. I know nothing of tomorrow, much less eternity in heaven. Treasure in heaven indeed…
Matthew 19:22 – But when the young man heard this he went away sorrowful, for he was very rich.
Are we different than this young man?
