MATTHEW 6:19-21

Teaching about Money and Possessions
19 “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroy them, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.


We can become so consumed with the things of this world (i.e. cars, homes, clothes) that we forget where our real treasure is found.
