Treasure Hunting

Money is on most of our top five lists for the things we least like to talk about. We don’t like people knowing how little we have, how much we have, or how much we wish we had. Scripture, on the other hand, talks about money a lot. The interesting thing is, it’s almost never only about money. Jesus didn’t talk about money so that he could take up a bigger offering. Instead, he used the subject of money to help us discover important things about ourselves. Money is important to talk about, not because we should necessarily have more or less of it, but simply because it shows us what we love—what we care about the most. Jesus says that where our treasure (money) is, there our heart will be also. So you can discover what you care about most by figuring out where your money most naturally flows to. In other words, your treasure shows what you treasure.
