Matthew 6:19-24

We all deal with it. We use it to acquire the basic necessities of life like food and clothing. We need it to find a place to live and keep that place. We use it to obtain transportation from point A to B. Most of us believe that the more we have of it, the better off we’ll be. Some people store it in secret places in their homes. Some store it in institutions that promise to provide greater security. We need it to go and visit another part of the world. We need it to gain the right to remove items from a business or store or garage sale. A few people collect it just because of the way it looks. But most of us use it to carry on in life.

The Federal Government is interested in our portion of it especially at this time of year. There’s a place just down the road from here where people walk in with it and hope to walk out with more of it after playing games with it. It has the potential to bring great joy. But it can also divide marriages, destroy careers, result in prison terms and most seriously destroy souls.

What is it?
