the good way

Matthew 6:19-24

Session 4 • Simplicity & generosity • Devotional

Spend some time reading and meditating on these words of Jesus, from The Sermon on the Mount. Allow yourself to be still and to sit under the loving gaze of God. Ask God to speak to you about the treasures you are storing up. What is his invitation to you? Spend some time in prayer or journaling about what comes to mind for you as you meditate on these verses. You may even want to do Lectio Divina with this passage.

Matthew 6:19-24

19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

22 “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
