“Don’t be afraid, little flock, because your Father delights in giving you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give to those in need. Make for yourselves wallets that don’t wear out—a treasure in heaven that never runs out. No thief comes near there, and no moth destroys. Where your treasure is, there your heart will be too. “Be dressed for service and keep your lamps lit. Be like people waiting for their master to come home from a wedding celebration, who can immediately open the door for him when he arrives and knocks on the door. Happy are those servants whom the master finds waiting up when he arrives. I assure you that, when he arrives, he will dress himself to serve, seat them at the table as honored guests, and wait on them. Happy are those whom he finds alert, even if he comes at midnight or just before dawn. But know this, if the homeowner had known what time the thief was coming, he wouldn’t have allowed his home to be broken into. You also must be ready, because the Human One is coming at a time when you don’t expect him.” (Luke 12:32-40, CEB)
Where your heart is there your treasure will be…
That isn’t how the verse is above.
Where your treasure is, there your heart will be too. If you show me your checkbook, I will tell you what had your heart.
Where is your treasure? We say when we join the church that we will see how this goes and then we will give. But I tell you if you truly do as this passage says and give everything away and trust in God, your heart will be so into what God has for you your life will be abundantly better than you could ever imagine.
Loving People. Loving God.
