Jesus On Treasures

Bible Event – Jesus’ Life

Suitcase filled with dollars

Designer goods, jewellery, fine linen, good food, vintage wines, fast cars, holiday homes, yachts; the luxury goods list is perhaps endless. So also is greed!

A more accurate measure of wealth, as Jesus said, is the treasure you accumulate in heaven, “For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be”. (Matthew 6:19-21, Luke 12:33-34)

Thought

How much treasure can I collect today, in heaven?

Reflection

Almighty Father, may my heart be rich in love and filled with mercy. This I ask in Jesus’ name.

Prayer: Daily Prayer (St Francis)

Lord, help me to live this day, quietly, easily;
to lean on your great strength, trustfully, respectfully;
to wait for the unfolding of your will, patiently, serenely;
to meet others, peacefully, joyfully;
to face tomorrow, confidently, courageously.
