What are the most precious things we have tucked away in our locked drawers, safes, cupboards, secret compartments? Have we spent time and care, cleaning and placing them lovingly in dry boxes etc.  preserving them. Do we expect that they will lasts forever? Do we think we can take them with us when we die? Do we think that whoever takes over will care for them the way we have?

Do we spend the same time and energy nurturing the Word of God in our lives? Let us cherish the heavenly gifts we have been given, using them to build the Kingdom of our heavenly Father. Let see with our hearts through the eyes of our Lord. Amen

GOSPEL
Matthew 6:19–23

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal. But store up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.

“The lamp of the body is the eye. If your eye is sound, your whole body will be filled with light; but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be in darkness. And if the light in you is darkness, how great will the darkness be.”
