Meditation Monday – Where is my Treasure?

I started a lengthy explanation of why I chose this verse as my focus verse of the week, but God has impressed on me to just let the verse speak for itself to whomever may take the time to look at it. I’ve been a bit discouraged lately, and this is the passage that the Spirit keeps running through my head when I ask for God’s help to persevere and refocus. May it minister to your soul at least half as much as it is mine right now!

Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:19-21

    Love that verse. This one’s long, but my hubby and I have been mediating on it for awhile now…

    1Timothy 6:6-16

    6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. 8 But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. 9 Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. 11 But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 13 In the sight of God, who gives life to everything, and of Christ Jesus, who while testifying before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, I charge you 14 to keep this command without spot or blame until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 which God will bring about in his own time—God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, 16 who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever. Amen.

    Love that verse and every time I read it now I hear the Seed’s song run through my head! “AND WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS..THERE YOUR HEART WILL BE ALSO..That’s where your heart will be, that’s where your heart will be, that’s where your heart your heart your heart your heart your heart will be….” 🙂
