Where Do You Store Your Treasure?

Hebrews 9:11 says, “But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things that have come, then through the greater and more perfect tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation) he entered once for all into the Holy Place…” We know that we are called to be “in this world, but not of this world.” In reality, we have one foot on earthly soil, the other striving for heaven. We’re not “pie in the sky” children of God who pay no attention to the temporal things of earth. But when it comes to the legitimate accumulation and management of wealth and temporal goods, we can sometimes lose sight of the preeminence of heavenly things. Instead of looking first to the tabernacle that houses our spiritual food, we place more trust and dependance on tabernacles made with human hands – safe deposit boxes, stock portfolios, property, possessions, etc. How good are you at keeping the right focus? What advice would you give to the rest of us to ensure that we do not “gain the whole world, but lose our souls” in the process? Share your take with Jerry and Debbie on Thursday.
