    Most of us spend our entire lives trying to earn acceptance. We want to earn it from our parents, peers, partners in life, people we respect, and even people we envy. The desire to be accepted drives us to do all kinds of things. It can influence the kind of clothes you wear, the kind of car you drive, the kind of house you buy, even the career you choose.

The Bible says, “If someone says, ‘I love God,’ but hates a fellow believer, that person is a liar” (1 John 4:20a NLT, second edition).

    Every time you’re generous, you invest in your eternal home. Jesus called this principle “storing up treasure in Heaven.” He actually used this phrase six times in the Bible! Any time Jesus says something six times, you better pay attention. If you don’t, you’re going to miss the blessing.
