Our treasure is rooted in God’s love when we take care of our families, welcome newcomers to our communities, help those in need, give generously to the poor, and respect each person we encounter.

Our treasure is scattered when we become self-engrossed, careless of the needs of others, and hostile towards those whose opinions and lifestyles are different from ours.

Our treasure is found right where we are, moment-to-moment.

Today I will practice choosing love over self-centeredness.

Jesus said to his disciples: “Do not be afraid any longer, little flock, for your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your belongings and give alms. Provide money bags for yourselves that do not wear out, an inexhaustible treasure in heaven that no thief can reach nor moth destroy. For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.” Luke 12:32-34
