The Brilliance of Jesus (Part 6)

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” – Matthew 6:21 ‭(CSB)

Every culture has a few key snares that pull our affections away from Jesus. As Americans, the chief competitor for our heart is our stuff. Whether it’s the money we save or the goods we buy, the temptation is there to let what we have define us. We find our significance and meaning in what we own. Our happiness is tied to our portfolio or lack thereof. Living that way pulls our attention off of Jesus. It shifts our heart toward the things of this world. The antidote is to prioritize our resources around the things that matter most. When we sow into what is eternal, our heart is sure to follow behind. Then we will be in position to seek first his kingdom.
