A Daily Devotion for Monday, August 16

Matthew 6:19-21

”Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

These words seem simple enough, but leave me a little confused. Our culture does not allow us to give all we have away or live simply moment to moment. It is expensive to grow old in our world, and we don’t want to become a burden on anyone else. In spite of this, it is still more difficult for me to give up my time than my money. I do treasure my time, and am very aware of what I do with it. Maybe this is where I need to be more generous; let God know I am willing to use my time to promote/protect/represent His Kingdom here on earth.

Father God, I may think I am generous, but am I really generous with what I value the most? Help me to make better decisions with my time. I will listen. I will be ready to change. I want to be better. Amen

Becky, transforming
