Word Filled Wednesday

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 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."  Matthew 6:19-21



What treasures are you laying up on this earth?  Wealth, possessions, success?  All of the treasures of this world can never measure up to the love of our Lord.  Put your life into perspective.  Realize what is truly important before it's too late.

Amen Allison! Treasures in this life are transitory, while treasure of the Spirit follow us onward!

Have a Blessed Day!

Amen... it's all nothing compared to the treasures that await us in eternity!

Hi Allison - this is so true. The more we hold onto earthly things the more God allows it to 'not make us happy'. I agree with Heidi, nothing here compares with what God has in store for us.
God bless

Verse 21 has been on my heart lately, Allison. For where you treasure is, there your heart will be also. I want my heart to be fixed on my ultimate treasure in Heaven - eternity with Jesus!
