For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.- Luke 12:34

 

Perhaps we invest too much of ourselves in the pursuit of worldly achievements; power, possessions, and positions. Maybe we have failed to realize that our worth as individuals is not really related to our wealth. Do we really believe that our Heavenly Father can supply our need in every dimension of life?

 

Jesus had just told a large crowd about a farmer who kept a huge harvest all to himself and in the process pushed God right out of his life. He told them to seek first God's kingdom and that life is more than food. The text warns us to avoid over attachment to material possessions. Instead we are encouraged to develop and invest in our relationship with God.

 

The text does not suggest that wealth is evil or unacceptable, but it does suggest that when we abuse wealth or become fixated on it alone, we dishonor God and set ourselves up for disappointment.

 

During your observance of Lent consider how you can remain focused on what really matters in life. Evaluate those things or pursuits that have become "treasures" in your life.
