THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW - Chapter 6 - Verse 20
Verse 20. Lay up treasures...in heaven. That is, have provision
made for your eternal felicity. Do not exhaust your strength, and spend
your days, in providing for the life here, but let your chief anxiety
be to be prepared for eternity. There nothing corrupts, nothing
terminates, no enemies plunder or destroy. To have treasure in
heaven is to possess evidence that its purity and joys will be ours.
It is to be heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ to an inheritance
incorruptible, undefiled, and that fadeth not away. The heart, or
affections, will of course be fixed on the treasure. To regulate
the heart, it is therefore important that the treasure, or object of
attachment, should be right.
