Articles at SOAR WITH EAGLES are scarce this week. Why, you ask? It has to do with one particular Scripture from the Book of Luke: “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Luke 12:34).
The Lord impressed this verse upon me when my children were little. The Holy Spirit helped me understand that while all of my monetary and material possessions were nice, they held no comparison to my relationships with God and the wonderful little family that He had given to my husband and me.
The Lord made it clear to me that money and possessions cannot provide relationships nor do they satisfy the longings of one’s heart. Only love can do that. Only Godly love fills us to the brim and overflows each day of our lives.
During the long Easter weekend, our family of four gathered together, something that, because of employment in distant locations, happens too infrequently. I spent the time I normally would use to write with those who hold my heart. And together, we focused on the One who taught us the real meaning of treasure.
Where is your treasure?
TO GOD BE THE GLORY
