Three Principles About Treasure

  1. Everyone lives for one
  2. Treasure controls our hearts (hearts = "the causal core of our personhood")
  3. Our hearts rule our behavior

The funny thing about treasure is that there are only two of them. I would have thought there were millions of ways to define and find treasure. Christ, however, says that there are early only two in Matthew 6:19-33: a lasting treasure or one that moth and rust can destroy. That’s it.

The tragedy is when we as followers of Christ forfeit true rest in deep affections in the Treasure of Christ, working to get horizontally – from others and the treasure of this world (and failing) – what we have already been given vertically :-).
