Treasure in Heaven (Matthew 6:19-24)
Sunday with your kids
Lesson summary: Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
In our bible story we learned:
1. The heart is big enough for one treasure.
2. There is no need to worry under the Father’s care.
3. Seek first the kingdom of God, and the Lord will take care of you.
Where is the Gospel?
How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?
Although it is true that we cannot serve God and money, it is equally true that we cannot serve God alone unless God changes our hearts. By nature, our hearts will be fixed upon earthly treasure unless Jesus gives us a new nature and a love for God. Jesus died to break the power of sin in our lives that we might be transformed by the power of his Spirit, that we would find our treasure in him rather than the world. Jesus is the treasure God has placed in our hearts. As unbelievers, we are blind to see this treasure. Once God’s Spirit transforms us and causes us to be “born again” (John 3:3), our eyes are open to see the truth of the gospel and believe in Jesus. The more we see Jesus and the riches that are ours in Christ, the less value our earthly treasures hold.
