"First Things First" by Christine Caine Treasure in Heaven
"Do not store up for yourself treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal" (Matthew 6:19-20).
Isn’t it exciting to know that we can store up treasure in heaven? What an awesome promise! Yet, I realize it can be easy to stay focused on our daily lives. There are so many things that can fill our time—family events, work, school, friendships, paying bills—with all this busyness, eternity can feel like an afterthought.
But the truth is your choices today affect you forever. So be encouraged! Your words, your actions, how you steward money, the time you spend in prayer ... all these things, when submitted to God, can translate to treasure forever!
Spirituality means “related to the soul or spirit, the intangible quality of every person that motivates, guides, and integrates their being and action.” If everyone has a spirit, then spirituality is not only for persons who embrace a particular religion but includes all people.
The Spiritual Development Program works to integrate spirituality campus wide as an important aspect of personal, professional, college, and community development.
