As you continue enjoying the new year, let me remind you that the rest of your 2016 will be determined by what you treasure, because, as Jesus said, where your treasure is there you heart will be also (Matthew6:21). And your heart is the control center of your life (Proverbs 4:23). You will do well to treasure what is eternally valuable so that when your life here on earth comes to an end, you will receive an eternal reward from God. God desires for your life to count for eternity.
There are many things we can treasure, but none is more valuable than a real, intimate, and vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ. He Himself said that the most important commandment in the whole law of God is to love God with all our heart, and all our soul, and all our strength (Matthew 22:37). This is the greatest treasure anyone can ever seek. There is no achievement and no accomplishment that’s greater and better than this. Your 2016 can be the best year of your life if you choose to treasure your relationship with God and seek Him above all else. This is my prayer for you and I hope you make it the desire of your heart in 2016.
Point To Ponder
What you treasure controls your heart, and your heart determines the direction/course of your life.
