Where is your treasure?

Matthew 6:19-24

19 Don't store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal.

20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves don't break in and steal.

21. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

22 The eye is the lamp of the body; If your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light.

23 But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. So if the light within you is darkness, how deep is that darkness!

24 No one can serve two masters, since either he will hate one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

The danger of living in this world is that we focus on the things of lesser value.  Money and material goods are nice to enjoy, but they can only bring temporary happiness.  Jesus warns us about letting the things of this world control our heart.  He reminds us that we cannot serve God and money. A divided heart will destroy you.  Take some time to think about where your treasure is.  What makes you happy? What gives you joy? Would you rather have joy or happiness?
