Where Is Your Treasure?

trouble with treasure_t_nt“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

“The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!"

“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money."   ~ Matthew 6:19-24

Ok friends, be honest. How many of you have gone to realage.com to find out your "real" age? You have probably noticed just since Sunday how surrounded we are by advertisements, music and other forms of communication that want us to believe we will be most happy if we do all we can to store up treasure here on the earth, and fight to stay young doing it! How radical and other worldly is the kingdom of God!

What can you give away today, this week? How can we be a people whose gravitational pull is Heaven, instead of the things that will pass away? As Randy Alcorn said,

“The act of giving is a vivid reminder that it’s all about God, not about us…Giving shifts me to a new center of gravity – heaven.” Randy Alcorn, The Treasure Principle Study Guide, pg. 61

Whether that is financial or some other form of giving lets pray for the grace to see through ‘healthy’ eyes and for our devotion to be with the right Master! See you at Not A Fan!
