Store Up Your Treasures

I recently read an article about a man who saved up his pennies for over 15 years. He finally cashed them in and received over $5,000! He said that he would look for pennies on the ground and would pick them up. Funny, most people would consider a penny “worth nothing”, yet this man saw it’s true value. It is a good reminder of how we should approach our lives.

In Matthew 6:19-21 Matthew states, “19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

Remember, we many only receive “pennies” here on earth, but Matthew reminds us that is we continue to “lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven” we have an amazing gift waiting for us in Heaven.

I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
