What we value occupies our minds and controls our emotions. It consumes our time with planning, fantasizing, and achievements. Therefore, we must choose our treasures wisely. It is a choice each one of us must make; a choice we will be held accountable for (Josh. 24:15).
The way to lay up treasures in heaven is to develop Christ-like character. A character which is improved by actively spending time in personal devotions, prayer, bible study and evangelism - so that we can increase in faith, hope and love - all of which Paul said “abide” (1 Cor. 13:13).
