Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. – Matthew 6:20
Today’s Bible verse made me think about Christmas time. How much of our energy is spent this season buying or getting the “right” gift? So much effort goes into our Christmas preparations. Do you ever wonder, why we try so hard to get something that will be outdated or boring before too long?
So much of our energy at Christmas time is spent in the pursuit of things that don’t last.
Today’s Bible verse tells us to not store up treasures on earth. Instead, we should store up treasures in heaven. So rather than living for yourself and what you can get, choose to do something different this Christmas.
If you have a friend who needs help offer it. When you see a need, meet it. If you have extra money, give it to your church to help them reach out to someone else in need. Mostly, just be open to let the light of Jesus shine through open doors all around you.
God wants to do something really exciting through you this Christmas season, if you’ll be willing to do what He asks you to do.
