Where is Your Treasure?

“ . . . for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:21

There are many people who think that they are wealthy who are not. We’ve seen the television series “The Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” and many times it should be called “The Lifestyles of the Rich and Foolish.” When is a rich man poor? When he tries to find satisfaction in his money. Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, said, “He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver” (Ecclesiastes 5:10). A man of modest income said to a man who was very rich, “I have more than you have.” The rich man said, “How is that so?” He said, “Because I have all I want, and you don’t.”

When you set your goal to be wealthy, then money becomes your master rather than your servant. What is your goal with your finances?
