Where is Your Treasure

What is the most important thing in your life?

Not what you would tell me is the most important thing in your life, or what you would tell someone else is the most important thing in your life.

But, what is the most important thing in your life today? What is actually first on your list today?

Listen to what Jesus says today in Matthew 6:19-21:

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

He says store up treasures in heaven, where it can’t be taken. Why? Because where your treasure is, there is your heart.

In other words, are they important things in life things that are eternal anda will last, or are they things that are fleeting and will pass away?

The stuff of heaven are thing that really matter and will ground our life in God’s life – faith. Family. Church. Relationships God. Service. Life.

The stuff of earth will pass away. These are things that seem so important now, but what do the matter in scope of eternity – money. Success. Popularity. Material possessions. Stuff.

The stuff of earth, it is fleeting. The stuff of heaven, it lasts forever, and is truly life-giving.

Today, where is your treasure. Where it is will show where your heart is.
