Luke 12:34

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (NASB)


“For where your treasure (thesaurus: the place in which good and precious things are collected and laid up, a treasury, storehouse) is, there your heart (kardia: the center and seat of spiritual life; seat of the thoughts, passions, desires, appetites, affections, purposes, endeavors) will be also.”


For where your storehouse of things deemed precious to you is, there you will also find the center of all of your affections and desires.


This has got to be one of the most simple Kingdom principles. Want to truly know where your motivations, loyalties, trust and drive comes from? Well just look at what you “store up” in your life. Is your life riddled with earthly treasures and day after day of seeking earthly gain and approval in the eyes of men? Or, are the things that you spend your time, money and efforts on rooted in spiritual matters that are not of this world? From the way we love to the way we spend our paycheck, we’re constantly laying up treasures. Today, fill up your storehouse with Godly treasures that will never pass away.
