At work so many people worry about losing their jobs and not having enough money to take care of all their bills. It seems that most of us have set ourselves up so that we live to work rather than work to live. As I get older and talk with others, I see that most have nothing for their future. They are planning to rely on the government to save them when they get older. People are using credit and loans to save them with what they do not have.
When I have traveled to other parts of the world, I have seen that there is no other government anything like America. Most countries do nothing for their people. They are allowed to starve, rely on their family, or even God.
Treasures are so different depending on what perspective you are looking at it from. Is a treasure your stuff, work, family, time, youth, etc?
19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:19-21 (NIV)
Are your treasures going to be destroyed by the things of this earth? Have you made a deposit into heaven? Would it be hard for you to live under a tree?
I always say to God: “Lord, I trust you, what can I do for You?” A friend recently told me that I need to stop with just saying: “I trust you Lord!” and let Him do the rest!!
