Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"Where's Your Heart My Friend"
"And I said to them, “According to our ability we have redeemed our Jewish brethren who were sold to the nations. Now indeed, will you even sell your brethren? Or should they be sold to us?”
Then they were silenced and found nothing to say."
Our Breakfast lesson this morning is a Question: Where's Your Heart My Friend?
Nehemiah challenged the nobles and rulers with this Question; reminding them of where they have come from. They were slaves in Egypt and Babylon, and now they're making their brethren slaves!
Their "Treasure" was money instead of God. They loved themselves and their comfort more than they loved God and His people.
Where our Treasure is there will our heart be also (Matt.6:18-21)
Our enemy is a thief, he distracts us with the pleasures of this world, then sneaks into our heart and steals the "unguarded" Treasure that is seated on the throne of our heart! This thief then swaps out the Treasure of our love for God and the souls of people, with a Love for Money and the pleasures of this world.
This is why Holy Spirit will regularly check our heart, and ask us:
"Are you looking out for your best interests or working for the Kingdom?"
"Are you coming through as Gold tried in the fire?"
"Have you taken an account of where your investments are?" Where's Your Heart My Friend?
The Warrior's Treasure is their Commander's Presence and the souls of humanity - that's where our life's investment is!
And that's Where Our Heart Is, my friend, and Fellow Warrior!
