Matthew 6:21 NASB "for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."I found myself speeding and needed to slow down! Today's verse is about treasures and our heart and where one is, the other is sure to be! Although I was willing to pay the ticket if I got caught speeding, I needed to realize that speeding wasn't in my best interest. Trying to get home to my family after speaking at a men's event, I came to realize that in a sense, I was already with them for my heart was there! The treasures in my life, my wife and family, would always be in my heart so I didn't need to break the law to get there. Just like our walk with Christ, breaking God's Laws won't get us any closer to Him or any sooner. If we treasure His Word, His Spirit and the blessings of the Cross and Resurrection, we know that our heart is with Him. Breaking laws never gets us anything but trouble and will actually keep us further from where we would like to be! peace, tom
