Pastor Matt Mosler
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” - Matthew 6:19-21
Today, Matt shared a passage where Jesus again encourages us to not just keep our faith to ourselves but let it overflow from within us to everyone around us.
He emphasizes how Jesus reminds us to guard our hearts—especially when it comes to our stuff, especially when we don’t even own “our stuff,” but are borrowing it from our Creator for the time being! Instead, we are challenged to treasure the things that bring real value to our lives.
Question: Do you own your stuff or does your stuff own you? When has this been a challenge for you? How have you noticed God helping you deal with this important issue?
Family Chat: Do you have any "stuff" that you need to be willing to share or give away to someone else? Maybe a sibling or friend? Remember God wants us to share our stuff not just "have more stuff".
Take Action: Invite your spouse, a close friend, or a family member to give you their honest take about where you stand with your stuff.
