Where your treasure is

Matthew 6:21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also
Where is your heart?
Is there someone or something in your life thatís distracting you from your walk with the Lord? You may say no but think about it. Is there a loved one who is taking your mind off or away, from Him? Are there things in your life that are more important than God, something that you wouldnít let go of if He asked you to give it up or give it away?
We must put the Lord first, above all and everyone else. There is no exception to thisÖ.He requires our complete heart. This is not saying we canít and shouldnít love others or have things, itís saying that we should not make anyone or anything more important than Him.
I know itís hard. You have that person right there with you, someone you love, someone you see each day and you may have that possession where you can see it all the time, admiring it or have it put up where it will not get damaged, but none of it means anything with out God being first, ahead of it all.
Just like the verse says, wherever your heart is, there is your treasure. I pray your most prized possession, the thing you treasure the most, the thing you love the most, is your love for the Lord.
Have a blessed and safe weekend everyone!
