Where Your Heart Is

“…store up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.” Matthew 6:20-21

Jesus told a man in the crowd in Matthew 12:15, 21, “One's life does not consist of possessions...Be rich in what matters to God." 

God placed eternity in our hearts. That is why sometimes we have a yearning for something more. We belong in heaven, and we are here to prepare to be citizens in heaven. The easiest way to learn is to go to the Master and read His words in the Bible. He tells us that we should not accumulate earthly riches because we can't take this with us where we are going. We should invest in treasures in heaven. We can exchange our pesos, dollars, euros, yens, not by going to the foreign exchange but by giving to God's work. Tithes, donations during calamities, having a birthday party in the prison, buying soap and books and cookies for orphans, helping widows, helping to build a home for the aged, etc. Heaven's treasures are PEOPLE! That's why Jesus paid the ultimate price for us- His very life!

It is not easy to stockpile heavenly treasures AT FIRST. Just as it was not easy for me to pray and read scripture for 5 minutes when I was young! It seemed as if 5 minutes was an eternity! But now an hour flies by so fast. It is the same with money. Give a little at first, partner with God, and He will train us if we tell Him that we want to invest in treasures in heaven!

We should try to listen to God's financial advice and try to put our money where there is no risk!
