Daily Devotion: The Telling Heart

Bible Reading: Matthew 6:16-21

Key Verse: Verse 21–“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Key Words: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also

The word treasure carries the idea of where our valuable things are stored. So our heart reveals what is precious or valuable in our lives.

We know what is stored in one’s heart by the decisions they make in life.

The average person today has a distorted view of what is important. Let me explain.

Some thieves one day broke into a store but didn't steal anything. They just exchanged the tags. They took a $6,000 tag off a diamond ring and put it on an imitation diamond. They took the imitation diamond tag of $99.95 and put it on the $6,000 ring. They took an imitation print painting and reversed its tag with that of an expensive original. People came in and bought stuff up. They spent a lot of money on the worthless and a little bit of money on the expensive.

We live in a culture today that has switched the tags. We put a lot of money on the flashy and put thirty-nine cents on character. We put a lot of money on expensive cars and high positions of career, but we put ten cents on integrity, truthfulness, dignity, and character. We have switched the tags. Don’t let anybody switch your tags.

What to do:
✞ Remember, your heart tells others where your treasure is.
