Think of “matters of the heart”, what things are coming to mind? Now think of “financial matters.” What’s now coming to mind? We imagine the heart and the finances to be very different things.
Jesus says they are inextricably linked. Where our wealth goes, so goes our heart. So if our hearts are not feeling invested in the gospel, maybe that’s because our money isn’t? If we want a heart for missions: Give. If we want a heart for the work of our local church: Give. If we want a fresh enthusiasm for the gospel and for its spread: Give. And watch as your heart follows your treasure.
PRAY for your heart to treasure the things of the kingdom.
PRAY for your treasure to be invested in that same kingdom.
