Today’s Reading | Matthew 6
Where’s Your Treasure?
What do people view as treasures here on earth? What are examples of treasures that would be in heaven? How do we store them up? How can you tell where you are storing yours? It seems that one way to tell would be to look at where you spend most of your time. There are those who claim to have their treasure in heaven yet spend no time in personal devotions, or don’t take time to reach out to someone who is hurting, etc. They probably don’t miss weight training or a TV show. Can they say their treasure is in heaven? People who choose weights over time with God or attending church would seem to be more interested in laying up treasures on earth than treasures in heaven. How tragic to store up all kinds of treasures here on earth that will only waste away and not store up treasures where they will last forever. Be honest,. Where is your treasure? Do the things of God take priority over friends, gaining rank, family, music, etc.? Make time with God your priority and lay up for yourself treasures in heaven. Your heart will be where it should be.
