The Daily Fountain Devotional of the Church Of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) 18 February 2021 – The Heart And Treasures

Topic: The Heart And Treasures (Anglican Devotional 18 February 2021)


Read: Matthew 6:19-21 (NKJV)


” 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 destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.

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

THE MESSAGE:


God gives us power to make wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18) and gives us all things to enjoy (1 Timothy 6:17). The heart is the centre of all things and treasures are valuable things on which our hearts sometimes concentrate. Many persons have laid their treasures on earth – Sometimes buildings, property, bank savings, etc. However, these treasures can on earth – be stolen, destroyed or broken into. We need to guard them. Moths and rust are possible devourers! Thieves today break even into banks to steal. Yahoo boys and girls, fraudsters (419 people) and kidnappers also target our treasures. The safest place to keep them is in heaven if you have access to it (Matthew 19:21). If one’s heart is laid on earthly things which can vanish in a twinkle of an eye, one can die prematurely.


Haggai 1:3-8 teaches us that many have put their treasures in open pockets and lost them completely. Investing in the work of God is the surest way to lay treasures in heaven. God can blow off the one reserved for personal use if this is neglected. So, where are you laying the treasures and the resources God has committed into your hands? You must give account of them on the last day. The first step to learning how to lay one’s treasure in heaven is to give your life to Christ.


PRAYER: Lord, teach me how to lay my treasures in heaven.
