Treasures

Matthew 6:21-22 But accumulate for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Store up treasures in heaven. What kind of treasures and how do we store them in heaven? Treasures for heaven are produced through the power of God’s Holy Spirit. The treasures are the fruits of His Spirit: love joy peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, self control, faithfulness and goodness. Anything that produces any of these fruits is a treasure being stored in heaven. All our thoughts, words and actions should be measured against these fruits. We criticize, judge and condemn so often without really thinking. We seek for self-gratification rather than helping others. We seek material wealth and possessions rather than giving of our best to others in need. Our question is what do we want as a treasure and where do we want it?
