Treasures

Jesus urges his followers not to collect “treasures on earth” because the temporary trinkets of the world don’t last. Some break down or rust away. Termites make lunch out of others. Instead, Jesus commands us to seek real profits — not material ones that pad only our wallets, but spiritual ones that benefit our souls. These heavenly treasures represent an investment opportunity too good to pass up. When Jesus says, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”, he means that we naturally worship our first love. If we love money and worldly treasures, we can offer God no higher than second place in our lives.

Matthew 6:20

REFLECT & PRAY:

*Would you describe your most important investments as “treasures on earth” or “treasures in heaven”?

*What evidence is there of your answer?

*What steps can you take to become more faithful in storing up treasures in heaven rather than here in this world?
