what is it we treasure? [+] Monday E-Devotion

If we knew our days were numbered, we would not treasure stuff here.  

How we hold our things tells us if we are givers or not.

People are always gonna matter!

(some quotes from yesterday's message in week 2 of our series 30 Days to Live)

Are you as convinced as I am that life is short?  This series has helped me and many others around The Community ask some serious question.  Yesterday we had a teen invite Jesus into his life which is what it is all about.

Those quotes tell us about our hearts and about how we treasure stuff.  Will you join me in looking into our accounts (money, time, energy, worry, etc...) and ask God to help us see what we think really matters?

Matthew 6:19-21 NAS --- "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 

That is not so much talking about banks v. putting money in your mattress.  It is talking about where our heart and our hope and our hard work lead us!

Matthew 6:33 NAS--- But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 

It is time to make our lives and our faith match up.  The stuff we treasure makes this all the more real. 

Raquan asked Jesus into his heart at The Community yesterday.  His mom accepted Jesus just a couple weeks ago.  GOD IS GOOD.
