Character, a valuable treasure

Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal;  but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matt 6:19-21

The precious things in life to guard
Are all those found within the heart
They shape and form who we are
A purpose for which we must not part
A great lesson that is wise to heed
Be good in thought and good in deed
If there is one thing of worth to treasure
A heart that loves so great in measure
