the key

We are able to have as much of God as we want. Christ puts the key to His treasure chest in our hands and invites us to take all that we desire. If someone is allowed into a bank vault, told to help himself to the money, and leaves without one cent, whose fault is it if he remains poor? And whose fault is it that Christians usually have such meagre portions of the free riches of God?

~Alexander Maclaren (1826-1910)

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. ~Matthew 6:21

I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food. ~Job 23:12

Your word I have treasured in my heat, that I may not sin against You. ~Psalm 119:11
