Wherever your treasure is,
there the desires of your heart will also be.
If you really want to know what is important to you, look at your checkbook register or your credit card statements.
How and where a person spends their money says a lot about that person. For example, if you were to look at my son’s checkbook register, you would find all sorts of electronic stores listed. He loves anything that has to do with computers. And if you were to look at my daughter’s checkbook register, you would find at least five different clothing stores listed. My daughter loves clothes.
God knows the real person who lives inside each of us. He knows what “the desires of your heart” are. He knows where and how you like to spend the money that He has blessed you with. Everything that we have has been given to us by God. That includes the money he allows us to make through our jobs.
Have you pulled out your checkbook register lately? How many restaurants are listed? How many clothing store names do you see? Is there enough money left in your bank account to pay the bills this month?
Remember, God blessed you with your money. Be wise in how you spend it.
