I started a lengthy explanation of why I chose this verse as my focus verse of the week, but God has impressed on me to just let the verse speak for itself to whomever may take the time to look at it. I’ve been a bit discouraged lately, and this is the passage that the Spirit keeps running through my head when I ask for God’s help to persevere and refocus. May it minister to your soul at least half as much as it is mine right now!
Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:19-21
