I love this quote from C.S. Lewis as it reminds me that this world is not my home. Despite the many things that bring me satisfaction, my soul will never truly find rest until I am home with Him; safe and completely made complete. Don't get me wrong, I love and cherish the life He has given me on this side of Heaven, but I can sense a deeper longing for Him that will not be satisfied until I'm with Him...face to face...in His sweet presence. The Bible describes us as, "aliens," or, "pilgrims," who are just passing through. We are not to get too comfortable with what we have on this earth because it is only temporary. This is why we are called to store up treasures in Heaven where moth, nor rust, nor thieves can destroy. I like how The Message translates it...19-21"Don't hoard treasure down here where it gets eaten by moths and corroded by rust or—worse!—stolen by burglars. Stockpile treasure in heaven, where it's safe from moth and rust and burglars. It's obvious, isn't it? The place where your treasure is, is the place you will most want to be, and end up being. (Matthew 6:19-21..emphasis mine.) So I ask...what does your stockpile look like? Is it full of material possessions that are going to fade away one day? Or is it full of Heavenly treasures? Serving the least of these, loving your neighbor as yourself, looking after the widows and orphans, and being the hands and feet of Christ. Believe me, I am preaching to myself here, too! I don't know about you, but I think it would be really sad to store up all of our treasures here on earth, then get to Heaven one day and realize that there is so much I missed out on. It has been made all too easy for us to buy into the lie that this life..this world..is all there is. Believe me there is SO much more! He offers so much more; eternal life with Him in Heaven...our true home.
