Week 1: Counting the Cost of Living in a Lost World
The value we place on something influences our willingness to give up things for it. Spiritual priorities do not come without sacrifice, Matthew 6.24a. What will I invest in my spiritual life in order to get home to heaven?
How you choose to answer these questions depends on your heart. The Biblical heart is the storehouse of human thought, will, and emotion. Your heart is a storehouse. What is contained there will be expressed through your speech and actions, Matthew 12.35. Where is your treasure? For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also, Matthew 6.21.
