Where is Your Treasure?

Meditations in Motion

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

Theologian Paul Tillich defined faith as our “ultimate concern“. The object of this concern is holy, full of grace, ethereal, sacred. Tillich said that faith ” is the most centered act of the human mind“. Our ultimate concern is our treasure.

If your faith is absolute, then you must accept being accepted. You must consent to receive the grace of being loved beyond reason and beyond any shadow of a doubt.

Where is your treasure? It is a good question to ask. Is your treasure temporal or is it eternal? Is your treasure worthy of your heart?

  1. Temporal or eternal–I don’t know. My treasure is my family, and in my spiritual belief system, these souls will go on to play an important role in future lives. So it could be said that I’m working on eternal relationships. But really, I’m probably just cherishing what’s around me today. Good post for rumination.

  2. When our mom died in 2012 and sister and I cleaned and closed out her one bedroom apartment — we saw “where your treasure is” in action. She had nothing of value because she gave stored her treasure in heavenly things!

  3. I decided many decades ago to do what I call “embracing the Light.” To me this means trying to embrace Love, Creator, family, friends, community, and my fellow man as the treasures in my life.

  4. Great questions! I always want my treasures to be things that can be stored in heaven. I know that this is not always the case and for that I pray for forgiveness. I want to get to the end of my life and hand to God those things that I treasured for Him. That brought Him glory. These things are what I want to be my treasures!

    Thanks for linking up @LiveLifeWell!

    Blessings,

  5. As I sit here contemplating what my treasure is I know that it is Jesus. He gives me life and the strength to live it even when things are hard. He reminds me that no matter what happens in this life, nothing compares to what is to come. My treasure is also the blessings He has given me – my husband and family… Remembering what is truly important makes all the difference.

  6. I ask myself something like this often…mostly because I need the reminder to let go of trying to do all the things and live my life well – according to God’s purpose and will. I like checking off task lists and getting things done, but there isn’t any real treasure there. Thanks for this short but powerful reminder. #LiveLifeWell
