WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: TREASURE

WHERE IS YOUR TREASURE?

“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 no break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:19-21)

“HOW DO WE LAY UP TREASURES IN HEAVEN?”

The answer is by living the way God has asked us to live and following after Him in all that we do. For example, loving your neighbor as yourself – if a man has a need for a shirt and you have extra, give him one – being a cheerful giver, honoring God in your marriage, sharing the good news of the gospel with those around you. There are so many things which all narrow down to loving the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and loving your neighbor as yourself.

I had been thinking about this challenge all day. But what kept coming to my mind was the scripture in Matthew the six chapter.

I thought about how important my family is to me, and realized that without the foundation of Christ in my life I wouldn’t have been able to lay a strong foundation in their lives.  So the center of my Treasure is Christ.

Wishing everyone a HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!  Thank you for visiting, liking or commenting on my blog.  I appreciate your visits.
