What is Your Treasure?
What is your treasure and would you give it up for eternal life? Would you give it up to follow Jesus? Peter, James, and John made a good living as they shared in a small fishing business. Matthew enjoyed the spoils of a career as a tax collector. But when Jesus came calling, there was something so intriguing about him that they gave it all up and followed him. God has a plan for every single one of us, and His plan is not exactly the same for every single one of us. It may not be to give up your career, it may not be to sell your possessions and give all of your money away. But He does have a plan for each and every one of us, and His plan is not our plan. What He does require is that we give something up. We can not follow God without giving something up. What stands between us and Gods plan for us, are the treasures on earth we hold so dear to our heart. What is your treasure and would you give it up to follow Gods call for you?
