Treasures in Heaven

Today’s Encouragement is Matthew 6:19-21 NLT “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. [20] Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. [21] Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.”

Treasures in Heaven-

“Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.”

Our hearts and desires are set on whatever it is that we treasure. 

– Selah (means to pause and consider that)

We might treasure our career, our family, our retirement dreams, our wealth, our looks (how many selfies?), our popularity…. Whatever it is that we treasure… this IS THE stumbling block of our lives. 

Instead! – (v 20) “Store your treasures in heaven…”. How do we do that?  First recognizing that this life, our possessions, our treasures are fleeting and will, within a few decades or a few minutes, belong to someone else…. Consider the wisdom of this Truth.

Then, by honoring and worshipping God above all else, with our time, our attention, our focus, our gifts, our praise, our talents, our money… we are storing treasures in Eternity.

My friends, we choose either – treasure for a brief moment here on earth where moth, rust, and thieves destroy… or treasure in Eternity.

Open our eyes, minds, and hearts to Your Truth Lord Jesus.  Help us to consider what it is that we now treasure, and how to refocus our treasures into Eternity with You.

Jesus, My Treasure
