“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
A person’s worth is determined by the object of their love and dedication. Where your treasure it, there your life will be also. If Jesus is your treasure, then your whole life is dedicated to Him, and nothing and nobody can reach your heart. If Jesus is your treasure, your heart is in Him. Who can touch you?
But if your treasure is in perishable things, in your husband, wife, children, or your own reputation, then your heart will be in these things. If any of these things are attacked, your heart will also be attacked. This is why it says, “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:23).
The truth is, when we center our lives in God with sincerity, making Him our treasure, it pays off: “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33).
