Regular readers of this blog may have wondered, “Will there still be a weekly Bible verse to go with Tony’s Minneapolis/Mall of America theme week?”
Not gonna lie. I was kind of thinking the same thing… but the cool thing about the Bible is there are all sorts of verses for all sorts of situations.
For this theme week I decided to go with Matthew 6:21 (NIV).
” For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
The Mall of America is fun and filled with many treasures and great bargains. (No sales tax on clothes.) It could be easy to get swept up in all the deals and access to “stuff”.
When I get caught up in “the thrill of the deal” or simply “acquiring stuff” I often need a reminder of where my real treasure is.
It’s not in possessions. It’s in my family and my faith.
