Where is your treasure

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.  Matthew 6:21

What possessions in this life do we hold close to our heart?  Is it our house or maybe our car?  Or maybe its some jewelry or even money?  The worldly things of this life will not last forever because it will rust, mold or stolen from us.  These tangible things that we treasure, we cannot take with us when we die.  There was a story told that a man died and when he got to heaven’s gate, the angel questioned him as to why he was carrying a bag with him.  The man pull out of his bag a gold bar thinking he would impress the angel.  But the angel shook his head asking why would he bring pavement with him. That is why we have set our affections on things that are above, and not on things of this earth. (Colossians 3:5)  The treasures that we should hold close to our heart is a life in Christ.  We store up our treasures by living a godly life,  by applying the Word of God to our lives and having intimate communication with God with our prayers.  Then our treasures will last for eternity.
