"Where your treasure is"

"Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." How limited is our comprehension of these words of Jesus before they are illuminated by the light of spiritual understanding, and how inspiring and comforting it is when through the study of Christian Science we learn the real nature of treasure or riches! The human heart forever clings to its treasure, its sense of substance, and the measure and permanence of a man's happiness depends upon his answer to the question, Where is your treasure?

Since God, Spirit, Mind, is the only substance, man's treasure is always spiritual and must exist in Mind. On page 70 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy says, "The testimony of the corporeal senses cannot inform us what is real and what is delusive, but the revelations of Christian Science unlock the treasures of Truth." The human mind, however, claims another substance, saying, "My treasures are not spiritual; my wealth and health, my friends and family, all the beauties of nature, are material. They need no revelation, for the testimony of the senses concerning them is plain to all. I have bestowed my affections upon them, though how to keep them I have never been able to learn." Poor, ignorant human mind! It sees only its own thoughts. Its dearly loved treasures are but shadows cast by its own false belief that it can obstruct the light of infinite Truth.
