Today's Verse: Matthew 6:19-20

Tuesday, January 9, 2018

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not corrupt and thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
— Matthew 6:19-20

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Where do you hide your heart? What we most value is where we will find our heart. So it is an important question. You see, we can treasure riches, control, security, and relationships. Jesus reminds us that it is only by turning loose of the things that most of us keep as our treasures that we find what is truly treasure indeed.

My Prayer...

Majestic Father, I pray that out of the riches of your grace, you may help me find my treasure in you and treasure nothing else above you. Today, I want to offer you all that I am and have so that my life will be lived for your glory. In the name of Jesus, my example and treasure I pray. Amen.
