Picking Our Life Treasures
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
As a final reflection during the period of Lent, let us consider our heart’s desire. What do we desire in and of life? Do we desire a heart filled with compassion and empathy? Do we desire a gentle and generous spirit that reflects a sincere kindness towards our neighbor? Do we desire a connectedness with heavenly things that bring peace and certainty? A heart pointed towards these things will instantly reject that which is material, self-interested, and seeking personal gain. In rejecting that which will tempt us away from our life’s purpose, we put away those things of the world that inevitably lead to discontent.
Points of Reflection
- What is it that you desire in life?
- What are your biggest obstacles to achieving a life with God?
- What changes can you make to achieve your life goals?
Blessings, until next time,
