i have been so impacted by reading Matthew recently, especially Matthew 6 & 7
i read them at least once a week it seems like. i just always have the desire to go back and read them because i feel like i take away more every time...
i have been especially captivated with Matthew 6:19-24 - treasures in heaven
it's been so good to my heart recently so im going to share it...
"do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 
but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 
for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
the eye is the lamp of the body. if your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. 
but if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. if then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
no one can serve two masters. either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. you cannot serve both God and money."

i feel like these verses pretty much speak for themselves..i constantly need to be reminded of this..that my treasure is in heaven!!! 
everything here on earth will rot away and die. but what we have in heaven IS eternity...forever!
i strive to truly live these verses out in entirety in my life

"your hope and your future are rooted in heaven, where eternal ecstasy awaits you. nothing can rob you of your inheritance of unimaginable riches and well being. sometimes i grant you glimpses of your glorious future, to encourage you and spur you on. but your main focus should be staying close to Me."
eternity awaits.
