“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” Luke 12:34 (ESV)
I find that my understanding of this verse has evolved over the years. I used to believe that well, my treasure is in heaven so my heart (focus, desires, etc.) should be in heaven too. There was sort of this guilt that I wasn’t so heaven-minded and for my desire for “earthly treasures”.
Quick, think of the things that matter the most to you.
Done yet? Let me guess… your spouse or significant other, your kids, your friends… Now, take a look at your calender and your bank account. On what do you spend your time and your money?
Now, do the two lists match up? Where your treasure is (your money and your time) reflects where your heart really is.
I think most of us WANT to treasure all of those good things, but reality speaks differently. Would those people in your life be able to say they are treasured? Just something to think about. 🙂
