Where is Your Treasure?
"For wherever your treasure is, there will your heart be also." Luke 12:34
I enjoy this verse because it brings me instant perspective along with a truthful reminder to watch my motives and efforts.
When I am struggling, frustrated, stressed, and just plain mad reflecting on this verse gives me the path I need to take to find happiness and let go of whatever it is that is causing these negative emotions and feelings inside of me.
Do I WANT to look at myself at times like this?
I like to sit in anger and resentment and focus on the wrongs that I perceive being done to me!
I have learned that I must first look at my attitude in order to restore order to my mind and peace to my soul.
I look at my motives first. I ask myself what I am trying to gain, get, or avoid through my actions, attitudes, desires, and behaviors. I next look at my efforts. Am I sitting in the negativity of the situation? Am I refusing to see the other side?
Am I willing to accept this person, place, thing, or situation exactly as it is for this moment and refocus my mind toward the positive attitude I need to move on?
This is when I learn firsthand where my “treasure” is. When I look at my motives and efforts, I can see where my heart is!
Lord let us fill our hearts with the treasures of Your Truth, Grace, and Love, AMEN.
