Store up for yourselves treasures
"Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven—where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal." Matthew 6:20
He is a poor man, however much of earthly wealth he may possess—who has no treasure in Heaven; for he will soon be stripped of all that he now possesses!
But he is a rich man, however poor in this world's goods he may be, whose treasure is above; for when he leaves this world he will enter upon the full enjoyment of the unsearchable riches of Christ, and upon the possession of an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade—reserved in Heaven for him!
Let me take heed to the words of the blessed Redeemer, in the passage of which the text forms a part. Let not my affections be chiefly placed on any earthly good. If riches increase—let me not set my heart upon them. Let me not hoard riches for myself, but use whatever I possess for the glory of God, and the good of others.
Is not Christ the chief treasure of my soul? Let my affections, then, rise to that world where He is gone. Where my treasure is, there will my heart be also!
