Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. —Matthew 6:19-21
No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. —Matthew 6:24
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. —Matthew 6:33
Where is your treasure? What treasure are you focused on? Are you focused on earthly treasures— those things “where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal?” Or are you focused on heavenly treasures— “where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.” What it comes down to is this— where is your HEART’S focus? What do you truly desire? What does your heart long for? What is your priority? What/who is your master? What/who are you serving? And there is the key— serving— what/who are you serving? Your service proves your heart’s focus.
Are you truly serving God? Or are material possessions your master? Worry focuses on the temporal (Matthew 6:28-34). Trust focuses on God and the eternal. So, where is your heart this very moment? Let us be focused on trusting God and the eternal and not be worrying about the temporal or material. Yes, let us “seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Yes, let us have the right heart focus and focus on the eternal— His Kingdom and His righteousness. He will give us what we need. We can fully trust Him for that! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-816LEY-F9U
Yes, Dear Father may my heart’s focus and desire be by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son Jesus. My desire is to focus on the eternal and to truly be serving in Your Kingdom. May it be so. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yQ6TLV_PWY
