Matthew 6:19-20 (NLT)
Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal.
Adrian Rogers tells the story of a man who did something distinctly different with his household trash. Instead of bagging it up and setting it on the curb like his neighbors, he placed it in a box enclosed in nice wrapping paper. Without exception, someone would drive by this man’s house and pick up the nicely wrapped boxes. The man would watch from a window in his house as people were fooled by the external beauty of the internal trash.
