For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:21
Excerpt from The Treasure Principle by Randy Alcorn.
"By telling us that our hearts follow our treasure, Jesus is saying, 'Show me your bank records and your Visa statement, and I'll show you where your heart is.' What we do with our money doesn't simply indicate where our hearts are. According to Jesus, it determines where our hearts go.
Suppose you buy shares of Ford Motor Company. What happens? You suddenly develop and interest in Ford. You check the financial pages. You see a magazine article about Ford and you read every word. You probably buy a Ford as your next car.
Suppose you're giving to help African children deal with AIDS. When you see an article on the subject, you're hooked. If you're sending money to plant Indian churches and an earthquake hits India, you watch the news and fervently pray. You develop a passionate interest in God's Kingdom.
As surely as the compass needle follows north, your heart will follow your treasure. This is a remarkable truth. If I want my heart somewhere, all I need to do is put my money there.
Do you wish you cared more about eternal things? The reallocate some of your money, maybe most of it, from temporal to eternal things. Watch what happens. You'll be amazed ...and happy."
