God Wants Us To Store Our Treasures In Heaven
Store All Your Treasures In The Kingdom Of God
While we are living here on the earth God wants us to put all our spiritual treasures in a safe place where they can be protected from thieves, St. John 10:10, St. Matthew 6:20, (KJVB).
The safest place for you to store all your spiritual treasures is in heaven, which is the kingdom of God. And if your are child of God his kingdom is in you. St. Luke, 17:21.
The treasures that I am talking about are not are not the material things that we have here on earth such as: money, food, clothes, jewelry, a car or a big house. They are your thoughts that come from the word of God such as: love, happiness, joy, peace, gentleness, faith, meekness, and temperance.
So you see, the word of God is worth more than silver and gold, rubies, diamonds and more valuable than precious jewelry. Besides, there is nothing here on earth compared to the word of God. Because your spiritual treasures can only be given to you by God.
Whatever you think in your mind goes to your heart. Which is God's treasure chest and his treasure chest can become full from your daily prayers, reading and studying his word and applying it to your life to be an example for others to follow.
So, if you want God's treasure chest to stay full before you die and go to heaven which is the Kingdom of God you must continuously put your total trust in him and you must be lead by the water and the spirit, "a born again christian." And the only way you can be born again is through his son Jesus Christ who died on the cross to save you from your sins.
