Treasure Hunting

Treasure Hunting

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:19-21

Upon taking a quick scan of my closet, there would be some who would say that my heart, then, must belong to the Nordstrom shoe department.  What can I say, Cinderella was proof that a good pair of shoes can change a girl’s life.  You know I’m right.

But, I really hope that those who actually know me would affirm that my heart truly belongs to my Lord and Savior, to my beloved husband, and to my darling boys.  In that order.

I really hope that the treasures of my time, my energy, my money, and my abilities are so invested in these priorities that I don’t even need to say it out loud.  That my actions demonstrate that I will first seek Christ and His will. That I will respect my husband’s leadership. That I will devote myself to raising children who know and love Jesus because they have watched their mama know and love Jesus.  And that I will do all this no matter the cost to myself.

And make no mistake, this treasure-hunting surely does have a cost.  It has cost me friends who don’t understand why I just can’t compromise my commitment to my faith.  At times, it has cost me my personal happiness when what Scott needs isn’t what I really want at that moment.  And it most definitely cost me my career and often my ability to participate in other activities because there are only so many hours in my day.  But it has been my way of following this command to get my priorities in order, to shed our culture’s pull toward the things of this world, and to then sit back and rest in the peace that comes from saying yes to God’s plan and not my own.  For His treasure is an eternity with Him.

Definitely makes the Half-Yearly Sale pale in comparison.
