Matthew 6:21 ~ NIV
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
The thing I thought about as I was reading this morning was, maybe that can be said the other way and still be true. Here’s what I mean by that. You can find your treasure in whatever your heart does automatically. Whatever is most important to you, that is the stuff you are going to find yourself doing the most. Whatever that looks like, whatever that stuff is, it’s what you are probably thinking about while you read this.
Wherever your treasure is, that is where you are going to find your heart. That is what you are going to spend your time doing. When you don’t HAVE to be doing anything, what are you doing? That’s a treasure. Whether it is something awesome or kind of lame, it is a treasure.
It isn’t bad to have ‘’treasures’’. But, when they don’t look anything like Jesus, that’s a problem. When our ‘’treasures’’ take over so much of our time that we don’t have any time left over to do the things we need to do, we should probably step back and look at our priorities. There is nothing wrong with doing things that we enjoy; but we should remember that God needs to be the most important thing in our lives and if He isn’t, what is?
