Message of the Day: Let The Object Of Our Affection Be Right!

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matthew 6:21, NKJV)

People who come into the kingdom of God should not view the material things of earthly life as others view them. They should put God’s interests first and be generous in giving to others. Those who set their hearts on material things are being disloyal to God, and guarantee bitter disappointment for themselves in the end.

If God be the treasure of our souls, our hearts, our affections and desires will be placed on things above. An earthly minded man proves that his treasure is below, a heavenly minded man shows that his treasure is above.

What Jesus condemned here is greed and hoarding of money. To regulate our heart, it is therefore important that the treasure, or our object of affection be right.
