Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Our True Treasures” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims to His disciples, “Do not store up treasures for yourselves on earth, but store up treasures in heaven.” Ponder on, “The earthly ‘treasures’ of material wealth, social status, power and glory are great temptations of the secular world that draw our attention and lifestyles away from God’s Will and Ways.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Do not store up treasures for yourselves on earth, where moth and woodworm destroy them and thieves can break in and steal. But store up treasures for yourselves in heaven, where neither moth nor woodworm destroys them and thieves cannot break in and steal. For wherever your treasure is, there will your heart be too.
‘The lamp of the body is the eye. It follows that if your eye is clear, your whole body will be filled with light. But if your eye is diseased, your whole body will be darkness. If then, the light inside you is darkened, what darkness that will be!’
