"For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
- Matthew 6:21
 
Our treasure,(that which we value most), is like a magnet. It draws our thoughts, desire, and our activity toward it. We may try to convince ourselves and others that our heart is elsewhere, but the pull of our lives is toward that which we love most. Our treasure, therefore, determines the level and the character of life.
 
It may be money which tends to make us its slaves and to crowd out from our hearts the love of God and of our fellow men.  It may be . . .

Our treasure, therefore, determines the level and the character of life.
 
It may be money which tends to make us its slaves and to crowd out from our hearts the love of God and of our fellow men.  It may be learning, art or music. This may lift us to a higher level, but the heart which is bound to such a treasure is still bound to the earth.
 
All such treasures may vanish from our possession in a few moments. Theft, fire, or war may take them from us. These then will certainly be lift behind in the hour of death. If these earthly treasures are our only treasures, we enter into the presence of God unspeakably poor, without Christ, without hope.  My friends in Christ this is serious.
 
Christian friends, May the enjoyment of our temporal possessions never diminish the appeal of the eternal. Earth's affluence is poverty when compared to the glories of eternal life with God. Share these eternal blessings with others.
 
If we live for wealth and fame,
We'll bring dishonor to Christ's name;
But truth and light will flood our soul
When we pursue a heavenly goal.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - Invest your life in what pays eternal dividends.
