What Would People Say Your Priorities Are

“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matthew 6:21 NIV)

The Bible says, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21 NIV).

So where is your heart today? It’s simple, really. It’s wherever you put your money. Some of you, your heart is in your home, because that’s where you put your money. Maybe your heart’s in your boat. Or your cabin. Or that car you love.

Wherever you put your money, that’s where your heart is going to go. Do you want to get interested in the Coca-Cola Company? Buy some stock. The moment you buy some stock, you’re going to be very interested in the stock price of Coca-Cola. If your treasure is not there, you couldn’t care less about Coca-Cola stock.

Where you put your money and your time reveals your priorities. You can say you love Jesus, but if you don’t spend any time with him, then you don’t love him as much as you think you do. You say you love your kids, but do you spend time with your kids? No? Then you don’t really love them the way you think you do. You can say you love to be in shape, but do you work out? No? Then you don’t really love being in shape.

The point is, it’s not about what you say. Here’s how you know what’s really important to people: Look at their calendar, and look at their bank statement. The way we spend our time and the way we spend our money says what’s really important to us.

You can say, “This is really important to me,” but if you don’t spend time on it and you don’t spend money on it, your heart isn’t really there.

When you give to God, guess where your heart goes? It goes toward God. It draws you closer. It’s an act of worship.

Where is your treasure?
