Declare Jesus – Develop Disciples – Glorify God

“Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.”

Matthew 6:19-20 NLT


Hello!

I was ‘channel-surfing’ a few weeks ago and landed on Channel 9’s ‘A Current Affair.’ Now, I don’t usually watch this program, but my curiosity was aroused by a story about an elderly man who had lost a significant amount of money, allegedly stolen by a family member from a home safe while he was in hospital. What a betrayal!

Apart from the callousness of the crime against a helpless, elderly person and the accompanying sympathy for his plight, I couldn’t help thinking about why he had kept such a large sum of money in what was a relatively unsecured place? Apparently, he didn’t trust the banks! I worked for a bank for nearly 10 years, (which bank? No, not that one!) and I can tell you that the strongroom in a bank is one of the most secure places I know of. (And I know that because I’ve been locked in one!) Why would someone choose to store ‘treasure in such an unsecured place’?’

And that got me thinking about where we might store our ‘treasures.’ In Matthew chapter 6, Jesus gives us some instructions about money & possessions when he says in vv19-20: "Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.”

‘Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.” Hmm… where am I storing my ‘treasure?’ Where is my heart? Julie will happily tell you that I collect a lot of ‘stuff!’ There’s not a lot of ‘treasure’ there, and yet I still store it knowing that every one of those things will be ‘eaten up by moths and destroyed by rust.’ It’s all temporary – it will not last – and I need to ensure that my trust – my heart – is always securely ‘stored’ in the hands of the One who created me; His Son Jesus; and His Holy Spirit who ‘leads me and guides me into all truth’. (John 16:13).

Hey, it’s not wrong to have ‘stuff’ – we’ve all it! We go wrong though, when we start to place our trust in ‘the stuff’ because it’s at that point where our heart will naturally sway towards that, instead of towards Jesus and the love He displayed for us on the Cross.

Oh, and in case you’re asking yourself: ‘How could he ever watch something like ‘A Current Affair’, I should also tell you that I read the Herald Sun! No judging please!!!

Have a great week!

Danny
