For Where Your Treasure Is…
If a person holds their treasure in earthly things they will be sadly disappointed. There is nothing worse than losing sight of the Lord over worldly items, especially, when we ought to know better. It is when we stop listening to Jesus Christ and become blind with greed and lust that we are often times consumed by anger after the failure.
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. ~ Matthew 6:19-21 KJB
What we are suppose to focus on is Jesus Christ and allow the world to slip by. This can be a difficult lesson for most of us, especially, when those of us that are struggling to provide for their family. When need remain focused on the real treasure and allow the whole of everything else to fade into the background.
The pain of failure is not real pain. Is it truly a failure if in the middle of the pain Jesus emerges to remind us of who we are and what our focus is to be? No, we did not fail, we simply took one too many steps of the path only to find three thorns stuck in our side.
Let it all go and let God.
Jesus lives in the pain, in the failure and in the brokenness. We need only keep our eye on Him throughout the process and the pain will disappear, love will be seen and the Truth will, as always, prevail.
Either the Scripture is the divine Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of God, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
