Choices

Any advice about making wise choices should be readily received. There is no better wisdom than from Jesus in Matthew 6:19-24 where He gives us contrasts, warnings, and a choice.

19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 22 “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness! 24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

A contrast: About two kinds of riches
Earthly riches and Heavenly riches

A warning: About two kinds of hearts
A good heart: like a good eye and A bad heart: like a bad eye

A choice: About two kinds of Masters
Either hate or love - Either leave or cleave

The choice: serve God or material things

What’s your choice?

Be wise today and always - make your choices with Godly wisdom.
