Tresures of Heaven

The other morning I was reading in the Doctrine and Covenants. I came across a scripture that I thought would be good to blog about. So first off the scripture comes from D&C 6:20 it says, "Therefore treasure up these words in thy heart. Be faithful and diligent in keeping the commandments of God, and I will encircle thee in the arms of my love."
As I read, I thought of treasures. There are many things in life that we can lay hold upon for treasures. Some it might be money, cars, trucks, bigger homes or a job. For others it might be family, church, prayer, or a relationship with Heavenly Father. There are two kinds of treasures, worldly treasures and there are Heavenly treasures. Worldly treasures are great they bring us some satisfaction and joy. Many times maybe bringing our family together for a weekend trip or a time of fun. But do they bring us together for eternity?
"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and 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. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." (3 Nephi 13:19)
"As we are faithful and diligent in keeping the commandments of God..", he will bless us and help us to become closer as a family and grow to love one another even more. As great as the things here on this life are we can have greater joy with those things that our loving Heavenly Father wants us to have.
