Where Is Your Treasure?

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

Luke 12:34

What you value most is your treasure. Where you spend your time andyour money is your treasure. Whatever dominates your conversation iswhat you treasure. What others know you for is a good indication ofwhat your treasure is. Most Christians are quick to claim that God istheir first priority. Yet often their actions reveal that theirtreasure is not God but things of this world. Some Christians find itdifficult to discuss their relationship with God, but they can chattereasily about their family, friends, or hobbies. 

Some find itimpossible to rise early in order to spend time with God, but theywillingly get up at dawn to pursue a hobby. Some find it difficult togive an offering to God but readily spend lavishly on recreation. Someboldly approach strangers to sell a product, yet they are painfullytimid in telling others about their Savior. Some give hundreds ofhours to serve in volunteer organizations but feel they have no timeavailable to serve God. If you are unsure of where your treasure is,examine where you spend your available time and money. Reflect on whatit is you most enjoy thinking about and discussing. Ask your friendsto tell you what they think is most important to you. Ask yourchildren to list the things most valuable to you. It may surprise youto know what others consider to be your treasure.
