Storage Wars

There is a reality show on cable TV called “Storage Wars,” where buyers compete with each other to purchase the contents of an abandoned storage locker in hopes of turning a profit. The gimmick is that once the locker doors are opened, they only have 5 minutes to survey it for treasures before bidding.

Jesus said "Don't store up treasures here on earth where moths eat them, rust destroys them, and thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matt. 6:19-20).

Until now I never thought of the heart as a storage locker. And in addition to your storage, the psalmist tells us that God is storing up goodness for those who fear Him (31:19). Just imagine your first 'day' in Heaven: your locker will be opened up and you'll be able to see all your treasures, including the ones God has been storing for you.
