Treasures in heaven are more valuable than earthly Treasures -Luke 12:33

Luke 12:33 -Sell what you have and give alms; provide yourselves money bags which do not grow old, a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches nor moth destroys.

Author: Evangelist Daniel Sushanth

Despite heavy security measures, banks are still vulnerable to robberies, as evidenced by recent incidents. Even more concerning is the fact that some banks are closing due to financial problems, leaving customers unsure of the safety of their savings. In some cases, the government is unable to guarantee the return of deposits.

The Bible passage in Luke 12:33 encourages us to focus on building up treasures in heaven rather than relying solely on earthly possessions, which are subject to decay and theft. This means being generous and helping those in need, as opposed to hoarding wealth for ourselves.

When we encounter those who are struggling financially, whether it be for basic necessities or medical bills, we should see it as an opportunity to provide aid and uplift them from their current situation. By doing so, we become instruments of God and channels of hope for those in need.

Ultimately, it is up to us to decide whether we want to use our resources to help others or simply watch as banks get robbed or go bankrupt. By following the teachings of Jesus and helping those in need, we can make a positive impact on the world around us. Ultimately, this can lead to a sense of fulfillment and purpose that goes beyond material wealth.

Father, we thank you for the blessings you have bestowed upon us, we ask that you guide us in using our resources to make a positive impact in the world, and to be instruments of your love and compassion. We pray for those who have been affected by bank robberies or bank closures, that they may find peace and security in their financial situations. We also pray for those who are struggling financially, that they may receive the support and aid they need to overcome their challenges. Help us to be generous and compassionate towards those in need, and to always seek to build up treasures in heaven rather than earthly possessions. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Can faith in God’s abundance help us to be more generous

In 2017, Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, Texas, causing widespread flooding and devastation. Thousands of people were displaced from their homes and left without basic necessities like food, water, and clothing.

One man, restauranteur Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale, decided to take action and help those in need. He opened up his furniture store, Gallery Furniture, as a shelter for people displaced by the hurricane. Not only did he provide a safe place for people to stay, but he also provided food, water, and other necessities. He even went as far as to personally deliver food and supplies to those who couldn’t make it to the store.

McIngvale’s generosity didn’t stop there. He also used his delivery trucks to rescue people from their flooded homes and bring them to safety at his store. He estimated that his trucks made over 50 trips to rescue people in the days following the hurricane. Through his selflessness and compassion, McIngvale became a symbol of hope and resilience for the people of Houston during a time of great tragedy.


The banks listed on the Bankrate website that have failed are First Republic Bank in CA, Signature Bank in NY, and Silicon Valley Bank in Santa Clara, CA.
According to reports by Economic Times, YES Bank, Lakshmi Vilas Bank, Punjab and Maharashtra Cooperative Bank, and Global Trust Bank have experienced bank failures.

In recent history, there have been several notable bank robberies, such as the 2015 Hatton Garden safe deposit burglary in London. The robbery involved a group of older criminals who used heavy equipment to break into the vault of the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit company and made away with an estimated £14 million worth of cash and jewelry. Although the gang was eventually caught and most of the stolen items were recovered, the heist gained worldwide attention for the audacity and skill of the thieves.

Another infamous bank robbery took place in India in 1987 at the Bank of India’s Opera House branch in Mumbai. The robbers, posing as income tax officials, managed to steal over 20 kilograms of gold and silver ornaments after brandishing fake guns and overpowering the security guards. They then took hostages before making their getaway. The robbery was carried out with precision, and the gang evaded capture for several years.

The preceding information has been obtained from multiple press releases published on the subject.
