Where is your treasure?

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Matthew 6:21)
The value of a man is defined by the kind of object he loves and surrenders himself to. Wherever his treasure is, there his life shall be. If his treasure is Jesus, then his life is totally dedicated to Him, nothing and no one will ever get hold of his heart. For if his treasure is Jesus, his heart is in Jesus. Who could touch him?

But if his treasure is on perishable things, on a husband, wife, children or on his own reputation, then his heart shall be on those things. And when those things come under attack, his heart will be stricken. For this reason we were taught: “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.” (Proverbs 4:23)
The truth is when we sincerely put our lives in God, making Him our treasure, we receive back: “But seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”  (Matthew 6:33)
Be wise and make the Lord Jesus your treasure, so your life and your heart shall be safely kept.

Excerpt from “Our daily bread for 365 days” by Bishop Macedo. This is the message for January 21st, and I am sure it is going to bless you.
