Matthew 6:19-24 (ESV)
19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 22 “The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, 23 but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! 24 “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.

The love of things can be a huge obstacle for many Christians to over come. Christ warns us that earthly things can hinder our true blessings.

The Christian Life is one of surrender. We are to give all we have to God, our possessions, our skills, our time, our hearts and even our very lives. We can start today by accepting His Son Jesus Christ for the payment of our sins.
