Where Your Treasure Is
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,Where moth and rusts corrupts, and where thieves break inand steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,where neither moth nor rusts corrupts, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also (Matthew 6:19-21). Labor not for the meat which perishes, but for that meat which endures untoeverlasting life, which the Son of Man shall give unto you (John 6:27). It is the Spirit that gives live; the flesh profitsnothing: the words I speak to you, they are Spirit, and they areLife (John 6:63). For as much as you know that you were notRedeemed with corruptible things as silver and gold..... but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot (I Peter 1: 18,19). For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16). If you then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, not on things on the earth (Colossians 3:1,2). Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passes away, and the lust thereof: but he that does the will of God abides forever (I John 2:15-17). Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God (I Cor. 2:12). As it is written, ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love Him.’ But God has revealed them unto us by His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God (I Cor. 2:9,10). While we look not at the things which are seen, but at things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal (II Cor. 4:18). Godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out (I Timothy 6:6,7). But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows (I Timothy 6:9,10). And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the Word, and the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the Word, and it becomes unfruitful (Mark 4:18,19). Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the Living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy; that they do good, that they be rich in good works...(I Timothy 6:17,18). Incline my heart unto Thytestimonies and not to covetousness (Psalm 119:36).Give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me withfood convenient for me (Proverbs 30:8). Behold thefowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns, yet your heavenlyFather feeds them. Are you not much better than they? (Matthew 6:26). Seek ye first the kingdom ofGod, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you (Matthew 6:33). But my God shall supply all your need according to Hisriches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).
