Matthew 6:19-21

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.


Jesus broke all human advice to provide for a financially secure future. He was indicating that there is no security in material things. Any type of material treasure on earth can be either destroyed by the elements of nature or stolen by thieves. Jesus said that the only investments, not subject to loss, are treasures stored in heaven.
