Today I’d like to share with you about setting our hearts on the right thing. This is what the Scripture says in Psalms 62:10:
Do not trust in oppression, Nor vainly hope in robbery; If riches increase, Do not set your heart on them.
The last part of the verse says: If riches increase, Do not set your heart on them.
It’s a fact that there are things that can distract our hearts from Jesus. They could be wealth, pleasure, fame, or other things. We need to be aware of them. And we need to set our hearts on the right thing. We need to set our hearts on Jesus.
This is what Jesus says in Matthew 6:19-21:
Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal;
but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Where do we put our treasures? Do we value the things in this world more than the things in heaven? Or do we put our treasures in heaven?
The truth is this:
What you value the most determines where your heart is.
I know this is easier said than done, but let’s learn to set our hearts on the right thing. Let’s learn to set our hearts on Jesus.
