What are the treasures to be found by raising our vision?

What an interesting thought. Can you name some of the treasures? If so, I want to hear some of them in the comments on this post.

Stephen looked upward: “Being full of the Holy Ghost, he looked up steadfastly into heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus standing on the right hand of God.” (Acts 7:55.).
.
What a wild world we live in. I say wild because that’s how a large majority of people live. There is no control or discipline. Many live believing in no consequence. Trust me; there is always a consequence.
.
Elder Faust spoke in General Conference and said the following: “My heart and understanding go out to our young people. They have to cope with a darkness, and moral fog as dense as many of us can ever remember. We live in a world where success seems largely measured by possessions.
.
The standard of the common thief, “What can we get away with?” has become the standard for many in the world rather than what our own integrity ought to demand that we do. What has happened to self-respect and personal integrity, which would not permit even entertaining the idea of doing cheap or small things?”
.
Heber C. Kimball recorded the following vision was manifested to Joseph Smith as near he could recollect.
.
“He saw the Twelve going forth, and they appeared to be in a far distant land. After some time, they unexpectedly met together, apparently in great tribulation, their clothes all ragged, and their knees and feet sore. They formed into a circle, and all stood with their eyes fixed upon the ground. The Savior appeared and stood in their midst and wept over them, and wanted to show Himself to them, but they did not discover Him.”
.
What would have happened if they looked up? They would have probably seen Jesus Christ crying and feeling the same pain and suffering they were going through.
.
Brothers and Sisters, look up! He is with you. Look towards Heavenly treasures as you raise your vision. The treasures here on earth are temporary. The ones you can take with you are your family. Look at them and treat them as your treasures!
.
Hear Him!
