In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble. Proverbs 15:6
As our life on earth moves on, the Lord desires to fill us with the Treasures of Heaven daily! These treasures aren’t tangible, they are spiritual, they are heavenly!

And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the Lord is his treasure. Isaiah 33:6
