The most precious things in life are free. They don't cost us money, but they cost us a lot in other areas. What we treasure and hold close is the thing that we love the most. That thing tells us much about what we believe about God. Take a look at what Jesus said:
Matthew 6:19-23 NLT
Are our interests or our love divided?
Matthew 6:24 NLT
"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.
Notice that we cannot serve two things. It could be God and money. It could be God and some material possession. It could even be several different relationships.
All of the Scripture that I am using today came out of my time with the Lord this morning where I ended up in Matthew 6. Incredible verses that tell us a lot about our hearts and about the things that hold our attention and love. My prayer is that I will want God and love God more than anything else. I pray that I will seek God and lead others to seek God above everything else. Is that your prayer?
Matthew 6:33 NASB
Am I seeking God? If I am, then the blessings are about to be more than I can handle.
