Where Your Treasure Is
Dr. David Livingstone, the famous missionary explorer, died in a mud hut, kneeling beside his cot in prayer. His African friends, former slaves he had freed, buried his heart under an mpundu tree. Then they carried his body back home, an eleven-month journey through equatorial jungle and open seas. All Britain wept. “Accumulate for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matthew 6:20-21) If you died today, where would they bury your heart?
