“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matthew 6:16-21 ESV)
Hymn ELH 252:1,5 I Walk in Danger All the Way
I walk in danger all the way;
The thought shall never leave me
That Satan, who has marked his prey,
Is plotting to deceive me.
This foe with hidden snares
May seize me unawares
If ever I fail to watch and pray;
I walk in danger all the way.
I walk with Jesus all the way;
His guidance never fails me.
Within His wounds I find a stay
When Satan’s power assails me,
And, by His footsteps led,
My path I safely tread.
In spite of ills that threaten may,
I walk with Jesus all the way.
Heavenly Father, thank You for giving me the true treasures of the Gospel, forgiveness and salvation. Help me always to see these as the most important things in my life. In the name of my Savior, Jesus, I pray. Amen.
