Blessed is the one who seeks to store treasures in heaven; for God’s blessing will be upon them who do good and seek to give God the glory in all things. They will hunger and thirst no more. God will satisfy them and provide for all their needs.
“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.”
We do not need to be anxious about the things of this world. One day all these things will pass away and all that will remain is our love for God and the reward He will bestow to His children on the great day of judgment. Blessed are those who have ears and understand.
What manner of people ought we to be if our reward is awaiting us in heaven? Be kind to one another. Give to the poor. Save the broken-hearted from their pain. Bless all with the knowledge of God and Jesus Christ the Savior.
Show everyone compassion, for the Lord shows compassion on us when we sin. Have mercy on those who do not know better, for they do not know what they do. God will reward us in the end, therefore, lay up treasures in heaven.
