          “Where is your Wealth?”                 Matthew 6:19-12

 

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

Matthew 6:21

 

What is your passion? What is your focus on life; career, family, health, financial security? All four of these are important and need your attention, but the common denominator for each of these gifts is that they can be taken away, through circumstance or through death, one way or another at some point there could be a loss experienced.  If all we do is focus on these important aspects of our lives, we miss the most important part, God.  Without God, neither career, family, health, or financial security would exist let alone survive. So Jesus asks, “what is your focus?”  What is the driving force behind every aspect and decision of your life? The answer should be simple yet sometimes difficult; God through our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ.  Consider this; if you build a house and only pay attention to details like the kitchen or bathroom without considering the foundation that supports the structure, at some point all will come tumbling down.  So Jesus is saying, start with the firm foundation of faith and let that be the foundation that everything else is built upon.  The stronger the foundation, the better the entire structure will be without a doubt. Jesus is not saying that we should not celebrate those things in life that offer us joy; what Jesus is saying that what we emphasize the most in our lives is where our heart lives. If your primary emphasis is not on the things of faith, what will happen when the transient stuff of life is taken away?  When you serve God, you even better serve your family, career, and your health. When you serve God, your financial stewardship will faithfully serve both God and you; in other words, be God’s servant and not a slave to money and stuff, both of which are transient.  May the treasure you most cherish be the gift of everlasting life through Jesus Christ. “Strive first for the Kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Matthew 6:33) Thank you Jesus for the gift that can never be stolen away.
