Store up for yourselves treasures in heaven. – Matthew 6:20
What does it mean to have heavenly treasure? Do you think it means that when you get to heaven and you did a lot of good in your life, that you’ll be like Scrooge McDuck and you can swim through a swimming pool of like heavenly gold? I used to think that. I don’t think that’s what it means. I actually think treasures in heaven are made available right now. Because I think heaven is made available right now. If you seek wisdom, I think treasure will follow. If you seek righteousness, integrity, I think you’ll grow in favor with God and man. I think this is what it truly means to have heavenly treasure. You store up for yourself a life that when you’re finished and this life is so fast, that you look back and you say I wasn’t perfect, but I sure did store up for myself the right kind of stuff. I didn’t put my trust in all those other things. And maybe you have those things but you use those things to bless others; to live a full life.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, help me to live a full life. Help me to seek wisdom, righteousness, and integrity. Help me to help others and to do your will today. Thank you for your love and the blessings you have given me. Amen.
