Whenever my best friend Kare and I get together, we bring a gift. We usually find some little trinket or homemade item we think the other will enjoy. We delight in the giving and the getting. Our homes have become speckled with these tiny treasures which remind us often of the love we have for each other.
I wonder if the treasures we are to lay up in heaven could be looked at in a similar light–as love gifts for Jesus. Isn’t it possible we would want something to offer the One who has prepared a place for us in His Father’s home? Isn’t it possible we would want a treasure, however small, to lay at His feet?
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Matthew 6:21 ESV
See: Matthew 6:19-21, Revelation 4:9-11, John 14:1-4
