Lent Devotional for March 13, 2014
by Paul Shupe

“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also…”

                                                                 – Jesus, according to Matthew 6:21
Jesus really nailed that one.  What we spend our money on reveals to us what is most important to us.  He’s just describing an essential truth about human beings.  So if we’ve many dollars for ourselves, and few cents for the homeless person, and if we spare no expense for our own comforts and think about the poor only when we’re counting what’s left, where do we think our hearts truly are?  Are we pleased with this?  Those who would follow Jesus need to think about such things, and then to do something about our conclusions.  Lent is the season for thinking about where we want our hearts to be.
