“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:19-21
Today as I typed this verse into the computer, I had thought that I had memorized the last portion of these verses. I switched the words treasure and heart in my original entry. We think that if we know where our heart is, then that will be our treasure, which is exactly opposite where the Bible tells us our heart is. “But it’s such a subtle difference,” you say? Not really.
Where you spend your “excess” hard earned money is key to where your heart is. Same with time. Where you spend a great deal of times tells people where your heart is. And lastly, what you spend time thinking about is also a key to where your heart really is. Perhaps our spending and time habits reveal more about us than we care to admit.
