“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Accumulating stuff is the way of the world. No matter what country you visit people want to have more than they posses at the moment. Gather all you can, keep it for as long as you can, and use it before you kick the bucket.
What ends up happening is life becomes a series of collecting and replacing; we end up with half a pile of valuable stuff and half a pile of broken stuff we can’t bring ourselves to throw away. Somehow we gain our security, our importance and our happiness on how much we have.
For most people that are the best life they can imagine and if they actually do get the stuff they want it ends up not being enough and they are right back in the same game of chasing after something new. Instead they multiply their griefs, they know their stuff is meant to be used for a purpose and they can’t figure out what that purpose is. Our life is supposed to be more than just the pursuit of stuff.
We often make mistake in life, spending lots of time and energy building our own little ‘castles’ of stuff and basking in our accomplishments. It all may seem worthwhile, but in the end it’s worthless.
In Luke 12, Jesus challenged His disciples to sell their possessions and give to the poor, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” In other words, the way we spend our time and resources says a lot about our eternal perspective.
God wants us to spend our time and resources building His Kingdom not your own.
