The word treasure refers to something valuable, worth working, keeping and fighting for. It means a place of safekeeping or store house. It also means a deposit. It is an amount you pay to seal your agreement for buying a particular goods or services.
Good treasures are the deposits of the kingdom that you must have in your heart that will ensure that good things are drawn to your life. God has given you willingly of all good and perfect things that pertain to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). It is your own responsibility to ensure you have good treasure in your heart.

“Good things” from the Greek word “Agathos” refers to benefits. The goods are the things that are touchable, tangible, visible, beneficial and necessary for earthly existence. For example, as a student, books and School fees will be good things while as a father, money to take care of your rent; a car, a house etc are the good things.

Treasure is the deposit of the Kingdom that is placed in your heart which will produce tangible, visible, touchable good things in your life. You can bring forth all the good things from the good treasure. Note that you will be the one to bring forth. God has done His part, you will take responsibility to load the treasure and ensure good things are produced in your life.

Prayer: Lord, help me to deposit the treasure that will bring everything that pertains to life and godliness into my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
