New You-Thursday Thought

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33

What is your treasure? Treasure is defined as something valued or precious. Jesus tells us in Matthew 6 that wherever our treasure is, that is where our heart will be. So think about that. Most Christians are thankful for their relationship with God, but do you truly value it? Do you value your relationship with Jesus Christ above anything, anyone and everything else?

Intentionally or not whatever/whoever we are close to is where our hearts will be; our affection, love, time, money, and attention. If we give our hearts to temporary worldly things we can surely expect temporary satisfaction in return; some recognition, a little money, feeling “good” for a while, and the like. But when we give our hearts (our whole selves) to Jesus we can certainly expect REAL eternal results; inner peace, joy no matter what, and being complete and confident in Christ. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also (Matthew 6:21). Is there anything more precious to you than your relationship with Christ? In Christ your perspective on life should be radically changed forever.
