Scripture: Matthew 6:20 & 21 "But collect for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves don't break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
Encouragement: What we spend our money on shows what is important to us. Jesus made a clear link between our hearts (the state of our spiritual growth) and our money. We are so dear to God that He paid the ultimate price for our souls with the life of His only Son. God did not send us a cheap, knock-off Redeemer. He gave us His most previous Son, sparing no expense; even while we were His enemies.
Prayer: Ask the Lord for grace and wisdom to effectively manage your resources for His glory. Ask the Lord to grow your love for Him and fora greater appreciation for His love and compassion for you.
