"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:21

"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." Matthew 6:33

Today is a big day in America as it always is when we inaugurate a new President. Hundreds of thousands will pour into Washington D.C. for this great event that celebrates the peaceful and orderly transfer of power. Some will come to participate in this significant event, some will come to peek in on it and some will come to protest.

Donald J. Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States on the steps of the U. S. Capitol Building. One of the primary reasons he was elected had to do with the weak economy and his promises to strengthen it. I hope he succeeds in that goal.

Everyone is concerned about the economy because everyone is affected by it. No wonder that when Christ began His public teaching ministry He taught about God's economy. In case you are wondering, that is the central theme of the Sermon on the Mount. God does business far differently than we do and with a different currency. He wants you and me to do business with Him in a way that brings the Kingdom of God to earth.

The currency of God's economy is love!

His business is transforming selfish sinners into surrendered saints! He is very good at it! Every sinner who trusts Jesus to be his savior is a net profit for God!

I know this because I am one of those who have been changed, by His love and His mercy and His grace!

And I gladly give Him everything I treasure most so I can know His love and enjoy living in it!

Where is your heart this morning?

Do you treasure anything more than you treasure Him?

Where your treasure is there you will find your heart!
