"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal.” - Matthew 6:19 (NKJV)

Never in my life have I seen money administered so freely in America as I have in the past couple years. Now, have we lived in trying times? Absolutely, but money has been handed out right and left to people groups our government never have and in amounts that are unprecedented. I could write about what I think about all of that, but it isn’t what I am here to do. Moving on, we hear and see shortages for goods, both desired and required, but when it comes to all these things, the money and stuff we hear so much about in the news aren’t what it is all about.

Yes, money is important, and food, shelter, and necessities are vital this side of Heaven. Still, if that is all that we are working towards, we have got to recalibrate our priorities. As followers of Christ, we have got to be using whatever we have (time, funds, and resources) towards growing the Kingdom of God. The Lord understands we all have to make ends meet and put food on the table, but as we give, He is faithful to provide. His provision may not yield every single thing we want, but He will always grant exactly what we need. Also, as we closely align ourselves with Christ, He begins to change our desires, so those things we previously wanted become less and less important and we begin to desire more and more things that are Kingdom-centered.

If all we focus on in life is storing up what we can see, taste, and feel, we can find that the great deceiver and thief, Satan, can rob us of those things. In fact, it feels like only a matter of time before he does. However, if Christ is our focus, even when the world tries to take, God sees fit that His Kingdom work does not suffer long. It’s amazing how God can fulfill our needs, yes, even following times of loss. All the stuff around us, no matter how impressive, will not last forever, but God’s work will. Let’s focus on doing that work to the fullest.
