Desires of the Heart

Matthew 6:19-21 (NLT) – Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal.  Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal.  Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.

In your experience, does your treasure follow the desires of your heart?  Or do the desires of your heart follow your treasure?

Can you change the desires of your heart by changing how and where you invest?

For example, if you purposefully volunteered weekly for several months at a shelter or program for addicts, would your heart change?  If you donated a significant sum of money to a specific cause or your church, would your interest in it increase?

Can you better align the desires of your heart with God’s kingdom?  Should you? (click to tweet)
