Where is your heart?

Matthew 6:21 (NIV)

“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”


So where is your heart today?


Simple! Your heart is wherever you put your money and time. Time is treasure because you can never get it back once you give it away.


Do you want to get interested in a particular company? Buy some stock in that company? From the moment you buy it, you’ll be very interested in that company. But when your treasure isn’t there, you will likely never think about the company.

Do you want to get to know your neighbor? Invite them to a nice restaurant for dinner. From that moment you will be interested in the life of your neighbor.

You say you love your kids, but do you spend time with your kids? No? Then you don’t really love them the way you think you do.

You can say you love Jesus, but if you don’t spend any time with Him, then you don’t love Him as much as you think you do.

Here’s how you know what’s really important to someone: Look at their calendar, and look at their bank statement. The way you spend your time and money shows what’s really important to you.

If you don’t spend time or spend money on it, then your heart isn’t really there. When you give to God, guess where your heart goes? It turns toward Him and the things He loves. When you spend time with God, you become closer to Him as you know Him more. Giving God your time and money is an act of worship. It’s where your treasure is.

Where is your heart today? Where do you want it to be? Decide where you want your heart to be and start investing your time and money there. Soon you’ll find your heart there too.
