Matthew 6:19-21 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
I KNOW we have more than we could possibly need!
More clothes, more linens, more food, more toys, and certainly more blessings than one family could ever use in a lifetime.
God certainly does provide!
I am sure that I am a borderline hoarder. I hate throwing things away - and donating things we don't need is almost just as difficult.
I think of donating as blessing others with the excess with which my family has been blessed - and that helps. But it is still emotionally wrenching on my heart...why?
God has not blessed me with all of these riches because he wants me to hold onto them! We do NOT need all of these physical items in our home. We do not need so many clothes, toys, and stuff cluttering up our lives.
I strive to give away more of the blessings the Lord has given us, in an effort to bless those who are poor. In exchange, the Lord offers me the riches of heaven!
Please help me to remember that the true riches lie with you in heaven, awaiting my departure from this earthly life.
