While I was visiting a church for an event, I noticed an antique looking trunk.
It was sitting on the floor in the back, behind all the chairs.
Being of interest to me, I decided to photograph it.
I didn’t open it to see what was inside.
Still, I wonder what it was being used for?
If I think of adventurous sounding orchestra music, I can envision it being a treasure chest filled with jewels.
Thinking of soft violins playing a gentle tune, I can imagine a young traveler packing a trunk for a journey back in the 1800’s.
For years, trunks and chests have held what is important at the time to their owners.
The Bible speaks to us about what our hearts deem important:
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
What we care about the most is usually not something that can be placed in a trunk or chest.
We love God.
We love our families.
But sometimes, we let the pressures of succeeding in our careers and the opinions of others become more of a treasure to us than they should be.
Where is your heart today?
It’s where your treasure is…….
