In reference to Matthew 6:20, how do you think one can "store up treasures in heaven" ?
Consider Matthew 19:29 "And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life."
Also, consider yourself, What things will our Father in Heaven reward?
By being intimate with God and working with God in the power and direction of the Holy Spirit.
By telling the gospel to folks, by encouraging one another in the faith, by walking in the good works laid out for you as per Eph. 2:8-10. The contrast between earthly "stuff" and heaven's spiritual rewards is the point of the passage.
I personally think it's talking about your personal relationship with God - Keep your life pure and right & do what God commands. eg love one another, Forgive, repent
Learn the complete story. Share IT! Do It again and again! Learn to discern your Father from the False Deceiver(s). Tell what you Know and what you Feel! About Your personal Relationship with the Father's Son.
If You Don't Have One Get One Soon!
Keep Studying, Keep Talking too God through His Saviour. And Seek the Promised Comforter.
Ask and you shall receive; If you truly, want too! You Can lie to yourself, but you can not Lie to the Father. Correctly and Humbly Give what you have received as best as you can. And as often as possible for you to give. Sing the Song of Praises; unto your Lord and Savior and your cup shall over runneth. In Heaven and upon this earth.
