Galatians 6:8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
We live in a world of decay. Things, rot, rust, and waste away. We spend many hours and years accumulating stuff. Stuff that has to be cleaned, cared for, kept up and fixed. Much of our time is taken up in caring for our stuff.
We are not going to take any of it with us and the parts that don't crumble and tear apart will be left behind and used by others. That is a fact yet many of us still spend the biggest portion of our time on carnal things.
Carnal things are things that benefit the flesh or to put it another way, our natural self. We like to eat, dress well, own things. If we are honest most of this brings us very little pleasure and even when it does it is a fleeting pleasure that doesn't last very long.
When we spend our time laying up treasures in Heaven it will bring lasting rewards. Those things are eternal and the treasures we send before us will be there when we get there.
Someone once wisely said, "You'll never see a hearse with a U-Haul trailer behind it because you can't take anything with you."
You can send things ahead though. You can witness to people and know that you will see them again when you get to heaven. You can serve Jesus and know that you will be rewarded in when you finally see Him face to face.
