You suffered along with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you, yourselves had better and lasting possessions (Heb 10:34).
Jesus told his followers, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matt 6:21). As we focus on the Lord and all that we have in HIM, even our most precious possessions can be held lightly.
Prayer: Lord, open our eyes to see you and to embrace what is most important each day.
I have to stop and pause today to embrace what is important today. Loving one another… Why is it that we live in a world where jealousy, envy and animosity consumes our hearts? Even those that say GOD is the head of their household. No, not the case… Why is it that I can see you every day and we smile, laugh, and joke but when you get home at night, you speak of my failures, you gloat on my downfalls. No, not the case… Why can’t you speak life into my life, instead of death? Why can’t you wish me well when I’m sick? What is the world becoming? Is there anyone, anymore which wishes me well in good faith? I know I’m not perfect but I’m seeking GOD’s heart continuously. Which makes me an imperfect soldier in his army!!!
