Store Eternal Treasure

 Riches that are of this earth
Eternally, they’re of no worth.
They get destroyed.
So brief is the joy,
When you gain treasure at first.

Jesus said not to store up
Things that decay and that rust,
But to store things above
By living God’s love.
His words are pure truth, so just trust.

Wherever your treasure is stored,
There your heart is, rest assured.
So store way up there,
The place where all share
A heavenly crown and much more.

-- C.V., girl, age 14

Author's note The poems in this blog were written by my children, ages seven through fourteen. The "Why This Blog" post explains how the Lord inspired these poems in answer to a prayer during illness. I also recommend visiting my children's blog, A Brush with Life, where you will also find beautiful art they have drawn for the glory of God. You can access my complete blog directory at "Writing for the Master."   The "Crown of Life" painting © 2012 is by Danny Hahlbohm, all rights reserved by the artist. Now I'd like to ask a very important question.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
