A Man and His Treasure

November 6, 2019

“But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” Matthew 6:20-22, NKJV.

Jesus says where your treasure is, that’s where your heart will be. Whatever you value, hold as precious and dear to your life, is the proof of what you care for and what you invest yourself in. Wherever your time, money, resources, and efforts to acquire things are, that’s where your heart is. It is the indicator of what you truly are after in this life.

No man can hide the heart from God. No man can disguise what they treasure from God, and there are things you may be valuing that, in the end, really won’t matter. Examine what your treasure is, and if it isn’t toward heaven, begin to put it there. You have one life to live my brother. Store up good works there. Store up the good treasure of a good heart and your reward there. What you store up there will last, won’t be stolen or eaten, and most of all, that’s where you will be.

Prayer: Father, man, this hit home. I may be valuing what really doesn’t matter in the end. Help me to put my treasure in an eternal place, where it can’t be stolen or eaten. Turn my perspective, resources, and efforts toward doing good and the things that are above. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

Study: Matthew 5:6, Luke 6:45, Ephesians 2:10, 1 Timothy 6:18

    Good Day Mr. Trippett. I hope all is well for you, your lovely wife (Mrs. Trippett) and the wonderful children you all have together. Yes, I am a woman and I read Sons of the King too!!! Yes, I recognize it’s directed to men. Please know where the word of God is spoken I will get my part. I can appreciate your writings because there are times when it’s not “brother this” or “man that” but its general. I appreciate you for it. The Lord continue to bless as you
    ask HIS Blessings, break and feed the multitudes what Thus Saith LORD GOD.

    P.S. My main thought in reaching out is tto find out if Mrs. Trippett okay? Is she attending to herself through nigh time with the LORD? Will she be back? The Three Devotional Writings I read from is: Utmost, Daughters and Sons of the King in that order. Lately, I’ve been missing time with DOT-K. I will pray all is well. Thank you!!! Goodbye!!!
