"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:21
As humans we all treasure things. We treasure things like security, vacations, money, marriage, family, jobs, pets... the list could go on for a while. Jesus is talking to his friends in Matthew chapter 6 and saying that there is nothing necessarily wrong with enjoying those things, they just won't last. All the things we treasure in this life are capable of being taken away from us. Jesus said, "lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal." Scripture tells us when we treasure Jesus our lives are completely transformed and our hearts become rivers of living water (John 7:38), because He's treasured in there and HE is living water. Thank you, Jesus, for your power to change lives!
