TRUTH FOR TODAY

Glenn E. Hawkins, Evangelist

WHAT REALLY MATTERS? [3]

Jesus taught us, "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also" (Matthew 6:19-21).

Jesus is warning against the giving of our lives for those things that are only temporary. Any person whose treasure is in "things" will one day lose his treasure, for in things there is no permanence, and no material thing lasts forever. Once a rich man in the community died. Someone asked, "How much did he leave?" Another replied, "He left it all." (more next week)
