There are athletes who love the fourth quarter. They play at a different level than at any other time – especially in games where the team is behind. In the final moments, they deliver, and it makes all the difference.
Jesus’ words in Matthew 6 have never been more appropriate. In the middle of his Sermon on the Mount, Jesus says, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth… But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven… For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (vs. 19a, 20a, 21)
He then goes on to invite us to be free of worry, assuring us that if we “seek first His kingdom and His righteousness,” He will take care of our needs. (vs. 33)
