Where your treasure is, there lies your heart

Apostle Paul warned the believers not to be overly concerned with worldly things—clothing, food, or their lives in general. The laws of the Pharisees regarding these were useless. Rather, he warned them of greater things.

“And I say unto you my friends, be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, fear him” ~ Luke 12:4-5

Paul also instructed them on what was pleasing to the Lord, knowing that some were concerned with amassing riches and glory for themselves, and some were of a doubtful mind, beset with worry. Instead of worrying about the banal things as the world concerns themselves, Paul posed the question: “Is not life more than meat and raiment?”

To think that God clothed the lilies of the field and did not pause to forget that their lives are short lived—here one day and faded the next—how much more will he clothe you? Those of little faith, take heart, Paul said. The hairs on our heads are numbered. His eye is on the sparrow. Are you not more important?

Solomon may have been an elegant dresser, but even the lowly lily still outdid him.
