Christ is our greatest treasure

“But store up treasures for yourself in heaven, where neither moth nor woodworm destroys them and thieves cannot break in and steal. For wherever your treasure is, there will your heart be too.” Mt 6: 20,21

Christ is my greatest treasure. Human friendships are great. It is fulfilling to help so many people through spiritual direction and youth programs. I love playing basketball, soccer and golf. I enjoy a quality steak with “twice baked” potatoes, flooded with butter and sour cream. But this is all temporal and fleeting and will eventually pass. Only Christ totally fills my heart. Only Christ gives me deep peace and joy. Only Christ is my faithful friend today, tomorrow and into eternity. Personally, everything makes sense to me only if it done with Christ, for Christ and to bring others closer to Christ.
