We may value power, money, or fame, but all of these things will pass away. Putting our faith in earthly riches or in our strong cities results in imaginary security. If we want to be safe and protected, there is only one answer. God is the one true protector. He can be the strong tower that keeps us safe. He offers salvation through His Son. The only treasure that is everlasting is the love, grace, mercy, and forgiveness that can be found in the one and only God! We should guard our hearts against the shine of temporary earthly riches and delight in the eternal treasures given to us by God!
Guard the treasures of God in your heart and share His glory with others!
Thank You for the eternal treasures that You have provided for me. Help me to guard my heart against the shine of earthly riches that do not last and to share with others Your eternal treasure! Through Jesus I pray, amen.
