“Where your treasure is, there will be your heart also.” Matthew 6:21

If a stranger were to look at the intimate details of your life, what would they say you truly value? 

How many times have you told yourself - "If I had this one thing (house, car, gadget...), then I would be truly happy"?  Jesus reminds us that what we treasure in life shows us where our "heart is" - or where fulfillment in our lives stems from.  It's easy to get caught up in wanting more "things" but we should always keep our focus on our relationship with God to find true meaning.  Things on earth will only crumble in the end.

Lord, help me to remember to store up my treasures in heaven through worship and prayer rather than treasuring my earthly possessions.
