Matthew 6:20 NASBS
 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal;
Jesus urges his followers not to collect “treasures on earth” because the temporary trinkets of the world don’t last. Some break down or rust away. Termites make lunch out of others. Instead, Jesus commands us to seek real profits — not material ones that pad only our wallets, but spiritual ones that benefit our souls. These heavenly treasures represent an investment opportunity too good to pass up. When Jesus says, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (verse 21), he means that we naturally worship our first love. If we love money and worldly treasures, we can offer God no higher than second place in our lives.
REFLECT & PRAY:
*Would you describe your most important investments as “treasures on earth” or “treasures in heaven”?
*What evidence is there of your answer?
*What steps can you take to become more faithful in storing up treasures in heaven rather than here in this world?

my add on:
Matthew 6:21 NASBS
 for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
when i remember what is truly important, and what the real treasure is, i am brought back to the simple things in life money can not buy.
all my "stuff" and money is temporary. investing in my relationships with family and friends, sharing my struggles, victories, and me is what matters. all the "stuff" and money i have r tools to help me invest in what is eternal.
