The law from Your mouth is more precious to me
than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.
“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.”
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms
because we are united with Christ.
“Don’t hoard treasure down here where it gets eaten by moths and corroded by rust
or—worse!—stolen by burglars.
Stockpile treasure in heaven, where it’s safe from moth and rust and burglars.
It’s obvious, isn’t it? The place where your treasure is,
is the place you will most want to be,
and end up being.
