19“Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal.20Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal.21Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.
22“Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light.23But when your eye is bad, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is!
24“No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
Where is my treasure Lord? When I think if the valuable things in my life, are they all things that I can’t take with me when I die? If I had a fire and lost everything I own, how would I handle it? Are you taking away my earthly belongs right now so I learn to depend totally on you Lord? These are hard questions you are asking Jesus, and I am ashamed to say I am not sure of my answers. I know this isn’t home. I know I long to go home to you and be with you. But I’m not so sure that while I’m here I don’t want to hang on to all my “stuff”. You’ve blessed me Lord with a lot of belongings. If you take them away, I will trust you will also make that a blessing. Your will be done Lord.
How would you react if God took away all your belongings? Would you be bitter toward him?
