Matthew 6:19


Matthew 6:19


"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.




Hockey Chat:  There are treasured skaters out there on the ice.  We can play for ourselves and have a great game and still walk away losers.  Or we can share our treasured skills with the team and win every time.  One of my favorite teams was the Florida Panthers when they first made it to the playoffs years ago.  Although they had some great players, not a single one of their players were in the top 20 of the NHL goal scorers. They all stored their treasures in the team not themselves and made it to the finals.  Where they stored their treasure, they made it while all the great individuals were eliminated.


Life Lessons:  You can’t take it with you.  Old but true saying.  We all been given different gifts by the great Giver of Life.  What do you do with those gifts?  Where do you store those gifts?  What we do with God’s blessings he gave to us, whether it be tangible things or great abilities, determines where or true heart is.
