What does our hearts most treasure?

WHAT DOES OUR HEARTS MOST TREASURE?
 
Possessions are a great responsibility. True wealth consists not in what we keep but in what we share with others.  
 
What do you want in life? That is everlasting life, but at what price? Do you have as much initiative and enterprise about spiritual values as the manager did about temporal values? St. Ambrose, a 4th century bishop said: “The bosoms of the poor, the houses of widows, the mouths of children are the barns, which last forever.” Possessions are a great responsibility. True wealth consists not in what we keep but in what we share with others.
 
St. Paul is an excellent example for us. Jesus Christ needs to be the center of our lives the driving force behind everything that we do. He helps us to be ministers and live out the Gospel; it is only by the grace of Jesus we can do this. Paul has dedicated himself to nothing but the preaching of Jesus. There is no doubt about his initiative, his enterprise, and his dedication.
 
May it never be true for us that we would so seek worldly things as to take more initiative about temporary values than the spiritual life. Pray that we strive above all for spiritual goals, which lead to heavenly treasures. Jesus said to His disciples and to us: “We are to be in the world but not of it.”
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Jesus message is very clear for us today, that our hearts must either be possessed by God’s love or our hearts will be possessed by the love of something else. What does your heart most treasure?
