The simplest things that Jesus says are often the most profound…
“For where your treasure is there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:21
It’s a good question to ask ourselves on occasion — “Where is my treasure?”
I consider my faith to be my real treasure in life. Everything else — especially the love of my wife, daughter, and family — flows from the treasure of faith. That’s where I try to keep my heart. However, being human and a sinner at heart, sometimes I forget where my real treasure is and mistakenly think it’s in the “things” around me.
What keeps me focused and my heart in the right place is the Word of God. One of the reasons why reading the Bible is a Real Secret to Life for me is because God’s Word not only inspires but it also keeps me centered in my faith. When I let my busy life get between me and reading the Bible, that’s when I lose sight of what’s important.
Today, I tweet on the 2nd Real Secret to Life — READ the Bible because it is our handbook on life. The Bible helps keep me focused and deeper in my faith, and appreciating that it is my treasure in life.
I hope that you take time today to READ your Bible. I’ll tweet some verses that inspire and help me on a regular basis. I hope they help you!
Take a Bible break today. And as you read, ask yourself the question, “Where is my treasure?”
