Leprechaun's Gold or Real Treasures

Luke 16: 10 “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities. 11 And if you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven? 12 And if you are not faithful with other people’s things, why should you be trusted with things of your own?

As people celebrate St. Patrick's Day with corned beef and cabbage and images of leprechauns with pots of gold, I am thinking on what Jesus said about being faithful with what we are giving in this life. He said we can not serve two masters. Not God and Money or God and whatever else you think of as 'important' in your life. If we are faithful and serve the one, true God and give Him our life, He will be faithful and take care of us in this life. I challenge you to take a moment today and this next week to search your heart honestly and see if there is anything you are putting first in your life instead of God. 
Your job
Your marriage
Your kids
Your friends
Your screen time
Your abusive substances
Your lustful desires
Your money
Your ...........

  1. Great post Erika and lots to think about. It's so easy to put other things before Him because He's not demanding of us. Just patiently waiting for us to realize only He can really satisfy our desires within our hearts and souls.
