Find Your Treasure And You’ll Find Your Heart …

Where Your Treasure Is

“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”  Luke 12:34


How many times have you been “beaten up” with this scripture?  When it’s quoted, it’s often quoted in the negative, indicating hoarding, the fear of giving or, the love of money.

Take a look at that scripture in context though and you will see that what Jesus was doing was protecting our interest.  Jesus was saying to think like God … taking care of those less fortunate than you but then get ready because you have access to ALL that He has in heaven:

“Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupt.” Luke 12: 42

When our desires become His desires and our will, His will, there is no need to hoard out of fear of not having enough … there will never been a winter too harsh nor a famine too severe that could stop us drawing from Heaven’s resources.

We’ll also have more than enough to give to others out of our abundance.

So I’ve chosen to no longer be “beaten up” by this scripture.  I’ve taken it in context that when I seek FIRST God’s Kingdom, everything I need IS available to me and will be provided … in abundance.  Basically, I know that when my heart’s desire matches God’s desire for me, my treasure is waiting, not merely to bless me, but to bless others also.
