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)
I love this passage of Scripture!
Whenever I find myself overwhelmed by the situation of the day, Jesus’ words bring me back to what’s most important.
If it’s been a while since you’ve read Matthew 6, I encourage you to do so today.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this issue of Stewardship Spotlight. In it, you will read about Deb Kamp, who worked with one of our planners to “store up treasures” for eternal purposes. We’ve also included important updates about the recent CARES Act, and how it might impact your charitable giving.
