The Heart

Re:Verse passage – Matthew 6:19-24(day five) “for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.“  Jesus makes an amazing proclamation. “Your heart always follows your treasure.” Jesus uses a comparative strategy to drive home His point and help us conclude, the treasure “stored” in heaven is superior to that which is “stored” on earth.
What if Jesus was warning against a greedy selfishness? Store for
yourselves– A heart turned inward and focused only on self. What if our “treasures” could be used to encourage and minister to others? What if we heeded the call this year to “Love Your Neighbor” (2024 church theme) by also using our treasures?  What if our hearts were intentionally focused and filled with the hope and certainty of eternal (heaven) things rather than temporal (earth) things?  Would that shape the way we live and love?  (Jesus thought so). Jesus is not only making sense, He is helping hearts find genuine faith, hope, and love.
