Happy Wednesday! I don’t watch a lot of television, but what captures my attention are shows on HGTV and the Discovery channel. The shows that fascinate me are discoveries of ancient ruins/cities and the search of lost treasures. I often ponder on the things people left behind or that they were buried with and think about how significant it was to someone at that time. In many cases, the discovery doesn’t hold much value or significance for the reseacher/pirate who uncovers the treasure, but it certainly provides small suspense and history about civilization at that time. Today’s verses are similar. Enjoy.
“19 “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal.20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.” Matthew 6:19-21 NLT
Brothers and sisters, if you are going to leave a treasure behind, let it be a legacy of love for the Lord. Let it be one that leads others to Christ so that you will see your loved one, your neighbor or stranger on the street in heaven.
Here’s a few questions to ponder on.
If your heart was a treasure box, what would be inside? _______
Will people find love for the Lord and the things that concern him? ______
Its not too late to make a change. Start today.
Father God, thank you for your daily provision. Thank you for standing in the gap for our needs. Lord, you know our hearts and everything we have in them. Lord, clean our hearts and forgive us. Help us to seek your will and follow you. Lord, help us to store our treasures in heaven. Lord, if our treasure is our children, help us to raise them in the way that they should go, so that they understand your truth and words. Lord, if our treasure is our marriage and/or family, help us to explain the gospel message to them, pray for them daily, and direct them to you always. Lord, if our treasures are our possessions, help us to release our treasures to you and allow you to guide us on where to use the finances you have given us. Lord, help us to give freely as you guide and direct us to give. Lord, we want our treasures to be stored in heaven. Lord, strengthen our relationship with you. Lord, equip us with your love and mercy toward others. Lord, change us. In Jesus name, amen.
