Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: Matthew 6:19
What is your treasure? When you hear the word treasure what comes to mind?
Treasure is defined as something we hold valuable, so what is valuable to you?
Is money truly a treasure or is eternal life? Are possessions really a treasure or your family?
Many that call themselves poor are already rich, they just don’t appreciate the treasures God has giving them.
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: Matthew 6:20
If you plan on living eternally then you will value things that last for eternity. But if you plan on living temporary then you will treasure things of temporary value.
You need to decide what your living for? Are living just for the moment or are you living to prepare for eternity? Where is your heart at?
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6:21
If money is your treasure, then your heart belongs to money. If God is your treasure then your heart belongs to your God. Nobody can serve two masters.
What is your highest priority? Are your actions intended to help others or to help yourself?
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18
When we understand God and our purpose we see the world very differently. When you live for the world you only see value in things of this world but when you live for God you see the value in eternity in his Kingdom.
So where and what are your treasures your storing up today? Are they temporary treasures or are you preparing for Gods Kingdom in Jesus name Amen
