Matthew 6:21 “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
You can tell a lot about a person by how they spend their money. What is important to them? What are their priorities in life? My selfishness and pride show up plainly if I let them control me. Same with my fears. So, if I took a look at your credit card statement or your bank statement, what would it tell me about you?
You can also tell a lot about a person by what they place value on. What I find valuable might be meaningless to someone else. I have an old, beat up, worn out, King James Version of the Bible. My mom bought it for me shortly after I became a Christian. I love that Bible. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. To me, it’s priceless. What is valuable to you?
Jesus knows what He is talking about when He says, “where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” You see, He gave everything He had for you and me. How He must love us and value us and cherish us having paid so much for us.
So, where is your treasure today? Does it reflect the heart that you want to have? Do you need to change the way you spend your resources this year?
“What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ.” Philippians 3:8.
