“What is a Treasure?” is the sermon title by Rev. Jose Luis Casal based on the gospel reading of Matthew 6:19-21.
What is the meaning of treasures? Treasures are valuable things to us that we like to store or accumulate. There are two types of treasures, the earthly treasures and the heavenly ones. Jesus is teaching us that the heavenly treasures are more valuable and precious because they bring us closer to God. These are still there after life is gone on earth because they are not tangible but spiritual. Be careful that your hearts will not be controlled by the earthy treasures but by heavenly ones like justice, peace and love. Only these treasures bring us joy and fulfillment and to a closer walk with God.
