Where Your Treasure Is

"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." ~ Matthew 6:21

Where does the heart lie?  In worldly things?  Or in God?

Is time that could be spent in God's word (or praying, or in worship) instead put to other things? 

Which is more important:

making money or spending time with God?
doing the laundry or spending time in God's Word?
checking the email or checking in with God?

"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." ~ Matthew 6:33

But we run after the other things.  We chase them, trying to get them by ourselves rather than seeking Him first and trusting that the other will be given to us also. 

God is enough.   Let my treasure lie in that... God is enough. 

Everything else is just the extras.
