For wherever your treasure is, there will your heart be too. Matthew 6:21

Second Kings 11:1-4, 9-18, 20, Psalm 132 & Matthew 6:19-23

Where is your treasure as you live your life each day? Are you worried about losing everything you have to some sort of famine, disease or financial meltdown? Many of us work day-to-day experiencing such an anxiety that we seem to lose focus on what we are seeking and why. We tiredly work year-to-year looking to store up as much financial gain utilizing any type of means to accomplish our goal. We stab people in the back to get ahead or use peoples good to accomplish material gain.

We overextend ourselves to accomplish selfish acts of lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, and pride. Yes, you see the Seven Deadly Sins when you live a life of storing your treasures up on earth but Paul reminds us in Galatians 5:19-21 that the list is actually more than seventeen different categories that drives us to experience the worst type of result; you “shall not inherit the Kingdom of God.” Galatians 5:21g

The act of storing up goods on earth is an act of seeking earthly desires of the flesh as noted by Paul in Galatians 5:19-21. “Now the works of the flesh are obvious: immorality, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, hatreds, rivalry, jealousy, outbursts of fury, acts of selfishness, dissensions, factions, occasions of envy, drinking bouts, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God.”

If we’d only begin to understand what it means to store up treasures in heaven then we’d live a life that agrees with God’s Word and aligns our will with His Divine Plan for every part of our life here on earth. To live the Will of God we must seek the Kingdom of Heaven and its reward by taking the time to practice, pray and preach trusting God’s Plan for us. We mustn’t be afraid of acting in our thoughts, action and deed to be a person who shares the tools of Christ’s Salvation never judging but lifting all in prayer to the Will of God. Human Nature works to prove something in life but I see Human Nature as aligning with God’s Truth in storing up treasures for God’s Kingdom. Amen.

In prayer we ask: Dear God, we pray today to seek Your Truth first to accomplish bringing Your love to the treasures we seek here on earth for the glory of Heaven and You. We pray for the NJ Emmaus weekend. May the Fire of Christ burn in us all. We pray for the NC Emmaus Team preparation. We pray for our family, friends and people we share God’s Truth with each day. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

God Bless His Truth for America,

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

 

How great is the Treasure stored for Heaven’s delight- Matthew 6:19-23

 

Jesus spoke in Truth of treasures we seek

Here on earth the storing of treasure makes you weak

The decay of life will destroy all from life’s leak

Where thieves break in and steal at life’s peak

 

Jesus reminds us to store up treasures in Heaven

Where nothing rots more so the Bread of Life He leavened

Nor moth or decay succumbs to His Truth they steal

On earth life’s treasures are overcome by Heaven’s appeal

 

You will find your heart in the Treasure of Mine

Says the Son of God by the eye of body’s design

With sound vision of Me the body is filled with Light

Vision of sin causes the body to be darkness to fight

 

How great is the Treasure stored for Heaven’s delight

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
