Where are your Treasures?

Treasures are what your heart yearns for and takes your maximum attention and quality of time. There are two places where treasures are kept, they are: on Earth and in heaven, these two places have certain attributes which are worthy of note.

Earth as a place on which treasures are kept is limited (moth and rust on Earth could destroy the treasures, and even thieves could get access to the treasures and steal them). On the other hand, heaven as a place in which treasures are kept is not limited (moth and rust cannot destroy them, nor thieves break through and steal).

Jesus Christ our saviour explained this to us; “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon the earth where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal but lay up yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth not rust doth corrupt and where thieves do not break through nor steal for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also”(Matthew 6:19-21).

Most people lay up their treasures on earth (the wrong place) but those whose heart beats for and have maximum attention and quality of time for the gospel are laying up treasures in heaven. Dear beloved, where are you laying up your treasures? Remember where you lay up your treasures determines the direction of your heart.
