Eternal Treasure

Matthew 6:19-21
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal. But store up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.”

What are your treasures? Are they material things of this world…or are they spiritual things like “love of God” and “love of your neighbor”? If your heart is in the grip of material things that will not last…Jesus says the momentary happiness that they bring is destined for “decay.” But if your heart is dedicated to love…you will find an everlasting joy even in troubled times. What do you need to let go of?
