Sermon on the Mount
Treasures, Eyes, and Masters
19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; 21 for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
22 “The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.
Jesus goes past the externals to the core issues of our heart treasures, how we see the world and our masters. He longs for us to make Him our ultimate treasure, our source of light, and our master. He is the only master who forgives us when we fail Him and satisfies us when we fully surrender to Him.
