Jesus said: “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.” Mt. 13:44
What do you value so much you’d sell all you have to obtain it?
Jesus also said: “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Mt. 6:19-21
What do you treasure? What does that say about your heart?
In one of the best books written on how to handle treasure, Robert Morris says: “How you handle money reveals volumes about your priorities, loyalties and affections. In fact, it directly dictates many of the blessings you will (or won’t) experience in life.” “If you want your heart to follow after the things that God’s heart is after – the local church and reaching the lost – put your treasure there.” (The Blessed Life)
In a special prayer of dedication to God, David said: “But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.” 1 Chron. 29:14
Think about it. What’s the wise thing to do?
