Treasures in Heaven

A year ago, I had surgery to remove a tumor. Then I fell down and broke my hip. Soon after that, I lost my sense of taste and my fingers became numb.
During all these bad things, I felt peaceful. I was at peace because people were praying for me, and I knew God was with me. This whole experience made me think about other people and their problems. I began to listen to people talk about their bad times. I encouraged them and helped them work through their problems. I was able to help people, and in turn, these people helped me.
Helping people is one way we can save treasures in heaven. That’s what Jesus was talking about in our verses for today. He said, “Do not save treasures for yourselves here on earth…Instead, save your treasures in heaven, where they cannot be destroyed by moths or rust and where thieves cannot break in and steal them” (verses 19-20).
