Where do You Stare?

“Don’t collect for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. But collect for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves don’t break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. So if the light within you is darkness—how deep is that darkness!

No one can be a slave of two masters, since either he will hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot be slaves of God and of money.”
(Matthew 6:19-24 Holman Christian Standard Bible ® ©)

Where your treasure is, that is where your heart will hover. The things that you treasure may not yet be in your possession, though. That would mean that I could follow your eyes and I would be led to the treasure in your life. Your treasure always catches your eye in an advertisement or in the possession of another person and absorbs your attention. Your heart instructs your eyes to gather at least the vision of your desires.

If your treasure is not of real value – eternal value – give it away somehow and thereby convert it to the currency of Heaven, so that when you arrive there, you will be rich in real treasure.
