Rutherford: the lost heart

Tuesday, August 30, 2022
    [Jesus:] “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
    —Matthew 6:19-21 (NIV)
    Since He looked upon me, my heart is not my own. He hath run away to heaven with it.
    ... Samuel Rutherford (1600-1664), Letters of Samuel Rutherford, Edinburgh: William Whyte & Co., 1848, letter, June 16, 1637, p. 346 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 6:19-21; Isa. 33:6; Luke 12:33-34; Rom. 7:5-6; Col. 3:1-3; Heb. 3:12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, my heart is Yours.
