Don't store treasures for yourselves here on earthwhere moths and rust will destroy them and thieves can break in and steal them. But store your treasures in heaven where they cannot be destroyed by moths or rust and where thieves cannot break in and steal them.
— Matthew 6:19-20 NCV
Lord, thank you for the gift of eternal life. Thank you for the proper view of true treasure. I used to think that it was selfish to store up treasure for myself. Now I realize that You commanded us to store true treasure. Thank You for reminding me what kind of treasures will last and where they need to be stored. Help me now, Lord, to be rich in giving to others and to Jesus' church. I want to be wealthy in good deeds and acts of kindness. Help me always to remember that treasure stored here won't last. I want to do good deeds to store treasure in my eternal bank account. I want to have credits for my eternal life, so lead me to do good. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
