TRUE TREASURE

“For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.” – Matthew 6: 21

Let me call her Edna. Born to a poor single woman and sold for P30 to a businessman, she had an ordinary childhood with her other stepbrothers and sisters. At an early age, she did not dwell on her past but decided to finish her studies, land a good job and live her life well. Today, Edna’s dreams are fulfilled. She married a good, rich man, who provides her with everything in life and more. She has her children and grandchildren who love and care for her. All of them support her in the life she has chosen.
Edna can sit down, relax and enjoy all her clothes, jewelry, cars, houses and other treasures that money can buy. But she has opted for the better life.
Every day, she goes early to church and helps out with the preparation for the Mass, sweeps the surroundings and helps the nuns in their kitchen work. She is a member of organizations that feed the hungry, give counsel, visit the sick and bury the dead of the poor. Often invited to be an officer of many other organizations, she prefers to be a hands-on worker, opening her heart and hands to those who need her. Her true treasure is in her heart, which is full of goodness and love. Chelle Crisanto (ellehcmaria@yahoo.com)

REFLECTION:
What you keep in this world — that is your earthly treasure. What you give away in this world — that is your heavenly treasure.

Remind me, Lord, when I forget to love and care for my brothers and sisters. Remind me also that my life should be for others and not for myself alone
