WILL ANY ONE BE IN HEAVEN BECAUSE OF YOU?

I was introduced to this church sign today by two different blogs to which I subscribe.  Look at the sign very carefully. Let its message sink in.

Now that you have done this, what do you think? Do you agree or disagree?  At one level, it seems to be a reflection of Matthew 6:19-21:

   “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.  But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

Instead of pursuing material gain or earthly position, invest yourselves in the lives of people. Build relationships that lead to their reconciliation with God and redemption in Christ.  Their presence in heaven, in part because of your hearts, will be what you treasure in heaven.

I agree with that interpretation and if the sign supports it, I affirm its message.
