What does my heart hold as true treasure? - Daily Bible Reflections June 19,2015


REAL WEALTH
 
“But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven... For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” – Matthew 6:20-21
 
       Dad was a big spender when we kids were young. He liked buying things for himself and for the family. He acquired a lot of things over the years like jars, plants, a large collection of Broadway musical Betamax tapes, an extensive selection of classical music, a then very hi-tech stereo, and other nice-to-have items. Dad took pride in these “treasures”and was very particular about taking care of them. But when Dad met God in the Renewal, these riches were replaced by the joy of serving the Lord with his family, bringing other families closer to God, and having friends who shared the faith. His possessions did not matter much anymore.
       When Dad died, we found that all his personal belongings fit into one big plastic bin. He didn’t keep any of the wonderful things he had collected over the years. He had given them all away.
       Jesus in the Gospel today tells us to be mindful of the treasures we acquire. As we go through this life, let us be sure to spend our time collecting good memories, meaningful experiences, and lasting friendships. Let us do good, love the poor, share His Word, and stand up for what is right. The storehouses of heaven can hold all these and more. Geraldine G. Catral (catral@beaconschool.ph)
