Treasures

Matthew 6:19-24  Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal,  (20)  but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.  (21)  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.  (22)  “The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, 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 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 the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.

Matthew 13:44-46  The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.  (45)  “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls,  (46)  who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

Matthew 19:20-21  The young man said to him, “All these I have kept. What do I still lack?”  (21)  Jesus said to him, “If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.

Mark 10:20-21  And he said to him, “Teacher, all these I have kept from my youth.”  (21)  And Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, “You lack one thing: go, sell all that you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.

Luke 6:43-45  For no good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit,  (44)  for each tree is known by its own fruit. For figs are not gathered from thornbushes, nor are grapes picked from a bramble bush.  (45)  The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

Luke 12:16-21  And he told them a parable, saying, “The land of a rich man produced plentifully,  (17)  and he thought to himself, ‘What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?’  (18)  And he said, ‘I will do this: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.  (19)  And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.”’  (20)  But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’  (21)  So is the one who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.

Luke 12:32-34  Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.  (33)  Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys.  (34)  For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Luke 18:21-22  And he said, “All these I have kept from my youth.”  (22)  When Jesus heard this, he said to him, “One thing you still lack. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.
