Scripture: Matthew 6:21-24
In Matthew 6:21-24, Jesus makes it very clear why it is essential that our treasure be in Heaven. Where our treasure is, that is where our heart will be. If our heart is set on earthly treasure, it will be controlled by what we own. Jesus goes on to say in verse 24, “No one can serve two mastaers; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” Since mammon, or the love of money, is the root of all evil, Jesus is encouraging us to put our treasure in Heaven with the Lord and learn to live out of that place. This means, if we do so, we are learning to live from an unshakeable realm! We learn to live from God’s provision. We secure our future in Christ. This means we refuse to live out of a place of where temporal unrest can halt all activity. Living from faith in God’s provision means we can always move forward in expectation. Will we choose God’s way, or will we choose the world’s way? The choice is up to us.
