<For where your treasure is there your heart will be also.> Scripture’s wisdom in this can be found in Matthew 6 verse 21, for those who have their thinking caps on. Preceding that verse, it tells us that it would be a good idea to <store up for yourselves treasures in heaven where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.>
How can a man exercise the faith that God leads him through in his life? Right now, man having treasure is in the idea of living somewhere that their passions and dreams can be lived out. What are The Savior’s plans for man though? Some treasure the idea of living somewhere that they can serve Messiah through producing music, for some it is healing others, for still some more, it is mountain biking, surfing or something else exciting. Were those desires placed in the man by God, though? Do men seriously consider sacrificing their deepest desires to serve God? Do men place their heart in the hands of Elohim (God)? Man’s heart was built to function properly in sacrifice. The heart ought to be in heaven where it is receiving eternal gladness and gifts of The Spirit. A well-spring of The Savior’s true, lasting, unadulterated gifts can be poured out all around a man in order to bring others of faith to a place of constant movement for The Father’s name’s sake.
Father, I beg You, please allow Your children to hope for Your heavenly kingdom and have faith in what The Bible has to teach about the future of the world, the nature of how evil treasures work on a man’s heart, in contrast to the way Your truth flows through a just person, and the treasure that is stored up in that manifold process; How wonderful The Kingdom Of Heaven will be because, not in spite, of their presence in Your Kingdom. Please, Father, open the eyes of my readers and show them why a continual investing in The Kingdom, beyond the first few difficult steps of salvation, is of eternal importance.
“I will make your pinnacles of rubies, your gates of crystal, And all your walls of precious stone; moreover,
The twelve gates, twelve pearls: each individual gate, one pearl. And the street of the city, pure gold, like transparent glass”
