Where your treasure is?
Jesus said this and it is an interesting verse.
20 "But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; 21 for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
My question is this... Why did Jesus say "Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." Instead of "where your heart is, there will your treasure be also"? For instance, which comes first, is it your heart that desires something and makes it a treasure, or is something a treasure that your heart latches onto?
I guess the real question is, if your heart treasures something earthly, how do you change it so that it treasures something heavenly?

May I live for Him and not for me.
