Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. Matthew 6:19
We live in a world where thieves break in and steal, sometimes figuratively, sometimes literally. Unfortunately, last night it happened to us literally. Caleb’s computer, my clinic phone, and wallet were stolen. The window bars were pried apart.
It was a brutal reminder of the world we live in. We are in a bit of a daze, and it seems hard with all the other things we have on our plate. But thankful that we are okay (Lydia’s and Moses’ rooms were the closest to the place things were stolen), my computer was not stolen, passports are still here. And we remember the second part of the verse:
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. Matthew 6:20. We look forward to that place of no rust, no moths, and no thieves. In the meantime, we’re remembering to store up our treasure there.
