Where is my treasure?

What do I value most?
Where do I spend my time?
Where do I spend my money?
What dominates my conversation?
What do others know me for?

The answers to these questions,
if answered honestly,
will tell me where my treasure is.

Luke 12:34 tells me that where my treasure is, there is where my heart will be too.

Am I giving my heart fully to the Lord?

I have been challenged lately in my quiet time to evaluate this.
God has gently uncovered my lack of listening skills,
my tendency to focus on the storm instead of Him,
and now, where my treasure truly lies.

If you are unsure where your treasure is,
examine the questions above.
Ask your friends to tell you what they think is most import to you.
Ask your children to list the things they see as most valuable to you.

We may think we know where our treasure is,
but our actions reveal the truth.

and sometimes the truth hurts.

However, I am so thankful that God doesn't leave me where I am. But continues to work on my heart; gently molding me and drawing me closer to Him.

My hubby and I just talked about this very thing over coffee this morning! I'm doing some examining of my own heart.
