19"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal, 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 22 "The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is sound, your whole body will be full of light; 23 but if your eye is not sound, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Jesus used the image of eyesight or human vision to convey an important principle of God's kingdom. Blurred vision and bad eyesight serve as a metaphor for moral foolishness and spiritual blindness. How one views their life and actuality reflects not only their personal vision how they see themselves and the world around them, it also reflects their inner being and soul the kind of ethical person and character they choose for themselves. If the window through which we view life, truth, and actuality is clouded, soiled, or marred in any way, then the light of God's truth will be turned aside, diminished, and distorted. Only Jesus can free us from the spiritual darkness of sin, incredulity, and unawareness. That is why Jesus called himself the light of the world the one true source of light that can overcome the darkness of sin and the lies and deceit of Satan. Seekers of great treasure will go to any length to receive their reward. They direct all their energies and resources to obtain the treasure. We instinctively direct our energies and resources an even our whole lives towards that which we most value. To set one’s heart on heavenly treasure is to enter into a deeper and richer life with God himself. It is only by letting go of false treasure that one can enter into the joy of a heavenly treasure that is immeasurable and worth more than we can give in exchange. Do we seek the treasure which lasts for eternity?
