July 5

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, 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. Mathew 6:19-21
Material objects of this world are just that, material. Many of us seek that new car, new house, .... Some of us can afford these items, yet are afraid to buy them. We stockpile our money in banks and in investment ventures to ensure our security. I am guilty of the wanting, the longing for more. Today I pray we seek God to fill that longing. We need to fill our internal warehouse with him instead of the "materialism" of this world. We need to invest in our eternal spiritual warehouse. Psalms 127 Says that; "Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labors in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stands guard in vain."
Today is a new day. Let God build your house. Let him provide for you. Cast your concerns upon him and he will reward you. Do not concern yourself with the "wants" of this world. We are the Lord's treasures, his children. Treasure him, treasure today, and you will find peace.
God Bless
