Karl Kissner of Defiance Ohio, picked up a cardboard box which had been in his grandfather’s attic for years. In the box he found hundreds of baseball cards bundled with twine. Some of the names were familiar Hall of Famers Ty Cobb, Cy Young and Honus Wagner. The seven hundred cards are from an extremely rare series, issued around 1910. Experts expected the cards to sell for two or three million dollars. This family had a treasure trove in their home and were unaware of it. Jesus spoke of treasure, warning people not to “lay up for themselves treasures on earth” which do not last. He encouraged instead “lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven” which last forever. When we have Christ in our lives we have heaven in our hearts, a treasure that will last forever, and an eternal home some day with Him.
