'Store up treasures in heaven.'

Lord, I'm not out to store up for myself treasure on earth. Even if I were, I doubt that I'd store up much anyway. Yet I must admit the emphasis in my life can slide off towards things like selfish comfort and pleasure, expensive clothes, extravagant food, the security of a solid home and bank account, or just feeling a little superior to some others.

You warn us, Lord, against putting our trust in things that we can't take with us when your call comes. Help us to get our priorities right and so to store up for ourselves, without getting morbidly self-centred about it, lasting treasure in heaven.
