For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also Matthew 6:21
He who dies with the most toys wins…
Although we come into this world with nothing and we leave with nothing, many people make it their life’s ambition to accumulate as many earthly treasures as they possibly can. They work hard to stay current with the latest cars, clothing, and electronics. Even though it’s impossible to always have the latest and greatest of everything, they continue to try.
Jesus has a radical view on our stuff. He says, “Your heart will always be where your treasure is.” If you’re having trouble finding yourself, start looking around at what you treasure. Jesus says you will find your heart here. Storing up treasures in heaven, like Jesus, is counter-cultural. When you make a conscious decision to live this way, you will feel that you are a fish swimming upstream, going against the tide. However, there are great rewards for choosing this path. Ask the Lord to give you a heart for His treasures.
