Matthew 6:19-21, 7:7-8 (KJV)

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,
Where moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break through and steal,
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,...
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Ask, and it shall be given you;
Seek, and ye shall find;
Knock, and it shall be opened unto you,
For every one that asketh receiveth,
And he that seeketh findeth,
And to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,
Where moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break through and steal,
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,...
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
