Treasures of the Heart

Matthew 6:19 – “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy and where thieves do not break in a steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart is also.” (NIV 1978)

My Musing – Life is about priorities. If our priorities are fame and fortune, our hearts will be motivated by greed and pride. If our priorities are the things of God, them we will be motivated by satisfaction and humility.

My Advice – Hold on loosely to the things of this world. Its treasures, fame and accomplishments do not last and can be lost in a heartbeat. Seek to acquire real wealth and recognition. The things you do for God and the things you do to build a Godly character will last forever and cannot be lost.
