For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6:21
Where is your treasure? Is your treasure at work chasing money or at home with your family? Is your treasure in the world chasing your dreams or are you on your knees chasing Jesus?
What we make our priorities becomes our obsession. We need to be careful who or what we make our top priority because we often neglect the things that are really valuable.
Treasure– something that is very special, important, valuable
When you hear the word treasure, we often think of a case full of gold. But we need to realize what our true treasure is, the gifts that God blessed us with.
(Proverbs 31:10) “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.”
I am blessed with a wonderful wife and kids. That is where my treasure is. My family is more valuable to me than anything in the world. Because they are my treasure my heart belongs to them also. I will always put my wife and kids first, and everything else second.
(Proverbs 4:23) “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”
Everything you do flows from your heart. Therefor if the treasure in your heart is not pure, you will lead a corrupted life. That’s why it’s important to “Guard your heart”. It’s easy to get mislead by greed or lust. That’s why it’s important to “Treasure” the people and things in your life most, and this will keep your heart in the right direction.
(Matthew 5:8) “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.”
Jesus taught us the pure in heart will see God. If you heart is following worldly lusts you will not see God. Don’t let you heart be led astray by the world. Let Jesus guide your heart, and you will not be misled.
(1 John 3:20) “For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.
Most importantly we need to remember we are nothing without Jesus Christ. Our hearts will continue to struggle and lead us astray, but through Jesus we are redeemed and he knows your heart. Continue to keep Jesus in your heart and your treasure be your gifts from God. Don’t be a fool to the world. In Jesus name Amen
