Treasures in heaven

treasures in heaven

The law of life is: We are born, we grow up, we reproduce and we die. But, the question that emerges from this is: What do we do with our lives while we are alive? The earth is only a passenger place where we do many tasks, where we work hard, but in the end we can not bring with us anything that we have worked for so hard, the only thing that we can take is the satisfaction of having been responsible with the things that We had in our charge.

The disturbing thing about this topic is that everything is temporary and we have immortal souls to save. We can not live life as if there was nothing else after death or as if someday we will not pity before the great tribunal of Christ, where large and small will be before Him. Life is short as well as drinking a glass of water, even what we have is over, we get sick, situations come to our lives that we never thought would come, we spend the years and then we look in the mirror and we realize that yesterday we were 18 and today we have 40, do you realize?

Jesus always taught wise words, and one of those texts is as follows:

19 Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.

20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.

21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Matthew 6:19-21

Many worry about accumulating wealth, having everything that can be had on earth, often forgetting the poor and afflicted, but we as Christians should not be in the same way because we know that our country is heavenly. Something very important that Jesus teaches us here is: Do not worry about accumulating wealth, on earth everything ends, everything rots, there are even thieves who can steal your fortune, but if you make treasures in heaven, no thief can reach what you have there, neither that celestial treasure will rot.

Create in me a pure heart
