True Wealth

Matthew 6:20-21
“Store up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.”

Are your treasures material or spiritual? We know that anything material will eventually turn to dust or end up in a garbage dump. Jesus tells us that true wealth comes from the Holy Spirit in the form of faith, hope, love, forgiveness and compassion. Our Loving God has freely given all these to us…so that we might pass them on to others. Giving your heart to material things leads to emptiness, but giving your heart to God leads you to experience the endless wealth of inner peace, contentment and joy!
