treasures in Heaven.

My thoughts lately surround much vs not enough, wealth vs poverty, justice vs unjust, capitalism vs minimalism

I want my treasures, my thoughts, my eyes to be fixed upon Heaven. God today.. may my life, my actions, my mind be fixed on you, on the cause of the weak and weary and may it be a constant reflection of your word.

Treasures in Heaven

19"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
22"The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. 23But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
24"No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.

a good reality check of where our world is compared to so many, who have nothing.

I pray daily that the treasures that God puts before me - children who need someone to love them would feel Gods love with every interaction. I may not be in Haiti, yet . . . but may my life exemplify Gods love daily.
