Matthew 6: 19

20 June, 2024

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. – Matthew 6:19

Abba Father, we thank you for being our source and supplying the smallest of our needs. We are greatly indebted to you for being our Refuge, our Shelter, our Provider and Dispenser of rich graces in our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for being our Good and Merciful Shepherd and leading us to lush and green pastures, so that we want for nothing. We exalt and praise your Holy Name, for you are great indeed.

Lord, there is no measure of our days on earth and we would do well to focus on our spiritual growth and earn for ourselves the merits of your glory. With your Mighty hand, you satisfy the hunger and the thirst of every living thing. For what good are all the treasures of this earth if we lose the treasures of our heavenly home where we will live eternally? Thus, we need to guard and protect our souls from the lures of the evil one.

We agree with your Word that our lives cannot be measured by how much we own. Hence, we will neither desire nor covet material wealth. We know we cannot serve two masters, so by faith, we will live our everyday life, knowing that life is much more than just food and our bodies are more than clothing. We need to seek the Kingdom of heaven, above all else and live righteously, knowing that you will faithfully supply our needs. By generously using our wealth to supply the needs of the impoverished, we will store up for ourselves treasures of good foundation for eternal life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen
