Treasures

Matthew 6:19-21 (NKJV)

19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

We see here that we need to do a heart checkup.  In all that we do, do we honor God and glorify Him?  Here is an acrostic of the word treasures that can help measure where you are.

Testimonies of His love

Reaching others

Eternal thoughts

Acknowledging His blessings

Servant’s heart

Unending love

Right heart

Everything for his glory

Stewardship of His gifts

Now this is an example of areas to evaluate.  Now please spend time in the Bible and pray to see all that He wants to show you.  As you spend more time with Him you will treasure the time and desire to do His will.  We all love surprises so we will be amazed at the treasures we will find in Heaven, but passing on blessings now are beyond description.  So treasure His love, share His love, and open up to His love and He will show you all that He has for you.

Prayer:

Father:  Thank You for the many blessings that You share with me.  Please help me to be a good steward of all that You give me.  Please forgive me when I sin in not sharing Your gifts.  Thank You for the greatest gift in Your Son Jesus.

In His Holy Name we pray, Amen.
