Matthew 6:19-21: Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Meditation: While cleaning the home office to make room for working from home due to Covid, I was forced to sort my library into three piles – those to keep, those to hand off to others, those to trash. Some were meaningful to me for who gave it, others for the content. It challenged me to think about why I had each book, and what would be the best place for it to be in the future. It made me think about my treasures, what I value.
My Prayer: Lord, help me please to focus on eternity, and remember that the things of life are vanity, but the things You value are eternal. Help me to value what You value.
