Store up treasure in heaven

Scripture reference

Matthew 6:19–21 (ASV 1901)

19Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where moth and rust consume, and where thieves break through and steal: 20but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth consume, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21for where thy treasure is, there will thy heart be also.


George Müller writes about a menial laborer who being intent on laying up for herself treasures in heaven, gave up her earthly possessions; time and again, to meet the needs of orphans and to support God's work.
