Treasures and Hearts

treasure heart“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also… A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good…” Matthew 6:21, Luke 6:45

It has been said that if you want to know what a person values, just examine their checkbook. The more money you spend on something, the more you think about it, worry about it, fuss about it…

We become very attached to the things we treasure; that’s why we need to set our hearts on things that please God. When we fill our hearts with good treasures, we will have something beautiful to share with those around us.

Let’s seek out spiritual treasures today; they will last forever, long after earthly treasures have faded, worn out or disappeared.

Prayer: Lord, help me to keep my heart centered on spiritual treasures rather than earthly ones. Let me overflow with the riches of Your love, joy and peace.
