A Different Perspective - November 10

The Heart Follows the Wallet

by Berni Dymet

Luke 12:34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be. 

I used to think that Jesus got it wrong when He said, "where your treasure is, there your heart will also be."  What He seems to be saying is that our heart follows our wallet.

Isn't it the other way around though? Surely our treasures follow our heart. Surely we use our money to do the things we want to do. 

When I first became a Christian I was earning a lot of money. I used to throw loose change into the offering on Sundays, even though the pastor often went without salary and even though I had enough to pay his whole salary on my own. 

One day God convicted me that how I spent my money, showed me what was wrong with my heart. It was such a strong conviction - I just felt I had to do more. But letting go of the cash, that was really hard.

Funny thing happened though - when I started to kick in the cash. Something changed. It was … my heart.
