Where is your treasure? What do you treasure? What are you living for? What’s most important to you? (Where is your heart?) Mathew 6:19-21, “Don’t store up treasure 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. Where your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.”
* “If you follow ___________, then all your other choices will follow that”
* “Why do you do the things you do?”
-To the degree that we see the beauty that God is, we will gladly sacrifice to love and serve him.
– Right now, live to be helpful (to God). We have all of eternity to be happy.
– When you see the True beauty in God, you will his heart.
*Worship = Words of encouragement
*God has all 5 love languages!
*The only way you can discover what you treasure is by facing a choice of this or that.
This: Loving Jesus, loving others, suffering, serving others
That: earthly possessions, position or power, comfort, family and culture, family ties, closeness with family.
*“Let the dead burry the dead”
These are our notes from lecture today. I really don’t know how to transfer my notes into a story. The one thing God really has been speaking to me about for almost a month now is “Let the dead burry the dead.” I treasure family; therefore it was difficult for me to finally give God everything, including my values for family.
