Treasure #2

Lenten Writing Prompt #2

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal; but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” Matthew 6:19-21
Where is your treasure and where is your heart?  What are ways that you are satisfied and/or what would you like to change?

Treasure – Do most people think of gold and silver – money – when they hear the word treasure? 

I think many of us understand that the greatest value –treasure – is what is unseen. 

Today I am reminded of the song my girls used to sing, called the Magic Penny:  “Love is something if you give it away, give it away, give it away. Love is something if you give it away, you end up having more.  It’s just like a magic penny, hold it tight & you won’t have any.  Lend it, spend it & you’ll have so many, they’ll roll all over the floor.”    

Love is the treasure.  The more love I give away, the more comes back, so I have even more to give!  We love because God first loved us. (1 John 4:19)   That is the treasure.
