the Precept (Principle)
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal.
the Promise (from God)
There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for My sake, and the gospel’s, but he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
our Prayer (to God)
My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to Thy word.
Take each Precept and Promise and Prayer and pray them back to the Lord as one prayer

VBS NOTE: As you lead these youngsters, you too are laying up treasure in heaven.
TURNING THE ABOVE DAY’S VERSES INTO A PRAYER
Oh Lord, forgive me for allowing myself to be blinded by earthly treasures. You know what we give up when we serve You…earthly stuff! That’s it, that’s all! Please quicken me Lord, revive me Lord, resuscitate me if necessary, that I would no longer have my eyes on earthly treasures, but on You, and heaven to come. Praise You Lord…
NOTE: Did Jesus mean, physically, 100 more houses and parents and spouses? If so, then expect 100 times more persecutions. I think God’s economy is different from ours.
