Where is Your Treasure?

“For wherever your treasure is, there will be your heart 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? 

Heck no! 

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 look 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.
