This week scripture happens to overlap perfectly with the work of the church.
You see, this week's assigned scripture reading comes from Luke 12:32-40 and includes the well known line, "Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." That biblical admonition lines up with our Special Congregational Meeting for this Sunday where will be talking about fundraisers and revenue streams for the church. (Please Note: We'll also be affirming our very own Al Beasley as the Commissioned Minister of Visitation for our congregation! Please plan on attending this Special Congregational Meeting.)
So I couldn't help but put up a simple little something on the Whiteboard about our treasure and our hearts.
‘Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give alms. Make purses for yourselves that do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
‘Be dressed for action and have your lamps lit; be like those who are waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet, so that they may open the door for him as soon as he comes and knocks.Blessed are those slaves whom the master finds alert when he comes; truly I tell you, he will fasten his belt and have them sit down to eat, and he will come and serve them. If he comes during the middle of the night, or near dawn, and finds them so, blessed are those slaves.
