When I was a kid, I did what you did. You pretended to be somebody you’re not. For me, it was Superman. I would get a towel from the closet and some safety pins and I’d pin it to my shirt and run through the house, sometimes down the street with my cape flying. OK. How many of you did that?
When you get older, life happens, you recognize you’ll never be Superman. You daydream about other things. Hitting it big…you know…hitting the lottery. You know when the lottery gets huge, inevitably a news outlet starts asking people on the street, “What would you do with 250 million dollars?” We have a tendency to think money is the answer to our problems…whatever they are. Throw some money at it and things will be better., but it’s not the ultimate answer. To coin an Italian proverb, “Money is a good servant but a bad master.”
So where’s the balance when it comes to money? Jesus said it best, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” Matthew 6:21. God understands that our use of money and possessions may be the single greatest indicator of our hearts. Where’s your heart today?
