Jesus taught:

“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”—Matthew 6:21

Let’s first and foremost understand that your treasure does not refer to gems and jewels, or silver and gold, not that Scouts have tons of it anyway.  Your treasure is that closest to your heart. It could be your family, your friends, and maybe even your pet.  I wonder if tangible things could be treasures also?  Our food is a treasure, as is a roof over our heads.  Our home is where our heart resides.  It is where our family shares their hopes and dreams.  Treasure your treasures with all your heart.
