Ask: Why do you think Jesus told us to store our
treasures in Heaven and not here on earth?
Discuss: Jesus talked a lot about money and
possessions when he was here on earth.
He knew that what we prioritize as most
important in our lives are also the
same things that matter most in our hearts.
He gives us lots of good gifts and when we
trust him to provide he can do it in amazing ways.
So we don't have to focus our hearts on worrying.
Of course, as Christ-followers it is important to
steward (or use wisely) every gift he gives
us but we shouldn't prioritize anything over our
relationship with him, or let any of it stand in our
way from completely following him. When we
focus our hearts on him, our treasures will be
kept safe in Heaven and never be taken from us
or get broke. None of the gifts and treasures
like toys & electronics we have now
will last forever, unlike those in Heaven that will.
It's hard to even think how awesome these gifts
will be that he has for us!
