Treasures On Earth Rust Away

Treasures On Earth Vs The Treasures In Heaven
Jesus Christ Topical Guide: Sermon On The Mount Series
Matthew 6: 19-20
“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal.”
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal.”
The best things in life are gifts from God; and these gifts are not for sale and you can’t earn them with degrees or positions.
Satan says you can buy anything in this world with money. What a blatant lie!
Relationships are the best treasures we can lay up in this life and the next. People are eternal.
If we are honest with ourselves, we all want is to love and be loved. We want meaningful real human relationships.
If you can love a wife and children in the way Elder Holland describes here, is a gift from God beyond comprehension.
“How grateful we are that in the midst of these kinds of challenges, there comes, from time to time, another kind of song that we find ourselves unable to sing, but for a different reason. This is when feelings are so deep and personal, even so sacred, that they either cannot be or should not be expressed—like Cordelia’s love for her father, of which she said:
“My love’s … richer than my tongue. … I cannot heave my heart into my mouth.”
Coming to us as something holy, these sentiments are simply unutterable—spiritually ineffable—like the prayer Jesus offered for the Nephite children. Those who were witnesses to that event recorded:
“Eye hath never seen, neither hath the ear heard … so great and marvelous things as we saw and heard Jesus speak unto the Father;
“… No tongue can speak, neither can there be written by any man, neither can the hearts of men conceive so great and marvelous things as we both saw and heard Jesus speak.”
These kinds of sanctified moments remain unuttered because expression, even if it were possible, might seem like desecration.”
If you live in the Salt Lake City valley, I invite you to join us at church on Sunday's. Currently we meet at 9 A.M.; however, starting in January we will change to noon. We are a mid-singles ward; however, if you have a family please don't let that stop you. Please, join us for for our first meeting which is Sacrament meeting, and make sure you ask someone to introduce you to our ward mission leader.
