WHERE ARE YOUR TREASURES?

 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.

It is well there is One Who is ever the same,

and Who is ever with us.

It is well there is one stable Rock

amidst the billows of the sea of life.

O my soul,

set not thine affections upon rusting,

moth-eaten, decaying treasures,

but set thine heart upon Him Who abides

forever faithful to thee.

Build not thine house upon the moving quicksands

of a deceitful world,

but found thy hopes upon this Rock,

which, amid descending rain and roaring floods,

shall stand immovably secure.

My soul,

I charge thee,

lay up thy treasure in the only secure cabinet;

store thy jewels where thou canst never lose them.

Put thine all in Christ;

set all thine affections on His person,

all thy hope in His merit,

all thy trust in His efficacious blood,

all thy joy in His presence,

and so thou mayest laugh at loss,

and defy destruction,

 Remember that all the flowers in the world’s garden

fade by turns,

and the day cometh when nothing will be left

but the black,

cold earth.

Death’s black extinguisher must soon put out thy candle.

Oh! how sweet to have sunlight when the candle is gone!

The dark flood must soon roll between thee and all thou hast;

then wed thine heart to Him Who will never leave thee;

trust thyself with Him Who will go with thee

through the black and surging current of death’s stream,

and Who will land thee safely on the celestial shore,

and make thee sit with Him in heavenly places forever.

Go, sorrowing son of affliction,

tell thy secrets to the Friend Who sticketh closer than a brother.

Trust all thy concerns with Him

Who never can be taken from thee,

Who will never leave thee,

even

“Jesus Christ,

the same yesterday,

and today,

and forever.

Lo, I am with you alway,”

is enough for my soul to live upon,

 let who will forsake me.
