Two questions every Christian should ask himself or herself are the following:  “Where is my heart,” and “Where is my treasure?”  In His sermon the mount, Jesus makes the connection that our heart and our treasure are always in agreement.  In Matthew 6:21, He says, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”  Jesus has always been more concerned with our heart versus our actions.  Out of our mouths come that which fill the heart (Matthew 12:34).  The religious leaders in Jesus’ day were more focused on their conduct when Jesus is more concerned with our character.  Our conduct flows out of our character.  Jesus calls us to store up for ourselves treasures in heaven where moth and rust do no destroy and where thieves cannot break in and steal versus storing up for ourselves treasures on earth where moth and rust do destroy and where thieves do break in and steal. What kind of investments are you making?  Are you seeking first the King and His Kingdom or are you seeking first your kingdom and investing in earth?
