Mt 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
As we hit this time of year you can see where many people’s hearts are.
Some may feel this blog is just because I’m a pastor. Let me say I have since I
completely surrendered my LIFE to serve the Lord – It has been for Him I focused
on building “my treasures”. I have been consumed with His will and doing
everything I can to move His Will forward. I went to every service we had at First
Baptist and invested my time, talent and resources into His work. Carrie and I
were deeply involved in the Youth Group and several of the youth still to this day
call to get counsel and advice. It was in that period of time the Lord spoke to me
about preaching His Word then He took me on a journey that now is going into
nearly 20 years of serving HIM. I watch as I see people who build their treasures
in so many things of this world only to find emptiness. Are there times when I feel
overwhelmed and wonder if “its” all worth the investment? Yes ..but then the
Lord moves in such a way that it only shows me that His treasures have eternal
values! I really think we need to look at what we allow our Hearts to be focused
on. Is there room for fishing and hunting? Yes. But it can’t consume my heart so
strongly that I lose my passion for serving Him. Again – not because I’m a pastor-
but because I love HIM and truly want my treasures to be His.
