Matthew 6:19

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
Matthew 6:19 KJV

In this verse, Jesus is telling us that when we leave this Earth that every material thing is going to be left behind, we cannot take it with us. It is better to have our treasures in heaven where it cannot be stolen from us. We came into this world with nothing to call our own, not even the very breath we breathe. Jesus is our treasure and heaven is our home, this world is not our home. No one can break into heaven and steal anything. As we live on this Earth in our homes; theives can Rob us and take our belongings, but no one can take the treasure of our heart from us, not now, not ever. We are not to treasure material things, because it rusts, wears out, dryrott, and becomes eaten by moths.

In heaven, that is something that will never happen. We should be thankful that we have a Savior who protects us in all situations down here on this Earth from heaven. His presence is always with us. We must come to understand that we will get to be with Him someday. Just as we thank Him for everything now, we will get to see Him face to face and thank Him for what He did for us. Jesus is our treasure who will never leave us nor forsake us. We never have to worry about being alone and afraid of anything, because His perfect love casts out all fear. He is always watching over His creation; that includes us. If you have not asked Jesus into your heart to be your personal Lord and Savior today, please do so, because He is waiting to become your personal treasure. Amen.
