Treasure in Heaven

Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys

and where thieves do not break in and steal.

Matthew 6:20

A man in Amsterdam, placed a 100euro note into an envelope and by mistake put it into a postbox. The mistake was reported to the local postal collection centre, but the envelope was never seen again.

Earthly treasure is often like that. It can be lost, stolen, or even squandered. It can be lost in bad investments or even in a monetary market over which we have no control. But the heavenly treasure we have in the Lord Jesus, a restored relationship with God and the promise of eternal life, is not like that. We cannot lose it in a postbox or anywhere else.

That’s why Christ told us to store up “treasures in Heaven” (Matthew 6:20). We do that when we become “rich in good deeds” (1 Timothy 6:18) or “rich in faith” (James 2:5); lovingly helping others and sharing Jesus with them. As God leads and empowers us, may we store up eternal treasure even as we anticipate our eternal future with Him.


Matthew 6:19–21.


Dear God, thank You for everything You have given me on this earth, my money, my home, and more. Help me to hold them loosely while seeking to store up more eternal treasures. In Jesus name. Amen.
