    WHERE'S YOUR HEART?

    Keep thy heart with all diligence for out of it are the issues of life.
    PROVERBS 4:23

    Jesus said "Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also" (Matthew 6:21). What we feel and believe are the truly precious and meaningful things in our lives. If we don't commit ourselves to what is good and right, then we are empty. Moral poverty occurs when we place things above relationships. Christ sent His disciples out into the world without possessions, but no one in history has known more wealth than those chosen men who walked with Jesus. It is when we choose to walk with Jesus that we can find out what true riches are.

    In today's world, it is easy to get distracted by so many things. Lifestyles seem so appealing are presented in magazines and on television. The "good life" requires money, good looks, nice clothes, the right car, the right house, and the right mate. At least that what we're suppose to believe. But it is only when we can free ourselves from the pursuit of such things that we can begin to enjoy life the way God intended it. Money cannot buy happiness, nor can it bring us life. Christ brings us life, and He brings it most abundantly. He is the real treasure, and as long as our hearts remain with Him, our lives will truly be rich.

    Dear Heavenly Father, Please forgive us when we lose sight of what is really important in life. Help us to keep our eyes focused on Your truth. Enable us to show others that You are the real treasure in life. Amen and Amen.

    Many Blessingss to all, Judy <a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/17/17_1_22.gif' border=0></a>

    Hi Judy,
    My husband and I have been reading "The Freedom of Simplicity" by Richard J. Foster. Your word today went well with what the Lord has been speaking to me through the book. Our hearts need Jesus to be content and out of that we find simplicity of life.
    Thanks for your input:)
