treasure that counts.

No need locking away every treasure you have here on earth. That money you make, those things you build, those big moments and big accomplishments? The words fade, the new wears off, and your trappings are torn up by people who want the benefits of what you’ve done without any of the tending to what you’ve done. Instead, let’s talk about what really counts. Love. Grace. Mercy. Selfless acts of kindness. Counter-intuitive moments that set eternity in motion for someone else. Those things are the real treasures here. Those things are the things even your mind won’t let go of. You will likely forget the details about that first paycheck. But you won’t forget your first kiss, or the first time you really meant the words “I love you.”  You’ll never forget the first time you held “the least of these” in your arms. And you never forget when Jesus first captivated your heart.

Let your heart be full of treasure that counts.

(inspired by Matthew 6)
