Matthew 6:21 “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”

Hopefully, you’ve heard that passage of scripture from the book of Matthew before.  As I was reading this week’s assignment, Chapter 7 “Living to Prove He is More Precious Than Life”….I was reminded of that line from the apostle Matthew.

Maybe it’s coincidence (or not) that last week we took a break from our book to talk about “mission trips”, specifically Mike Lenhart and Bryan Brooks shared stories and pictures from their recent trip to Uganda.  And this week’s chapter certainly hints on the importance of mission trips.  However, on a broader sense, our author this week discusses how we are demonstrating the value and worth of Jesus Christ.

Here’s a leading question to ponder in advance of this week:

“If someone who did not know that you were a Christian observed the way you spend your money, the kind of clothes you wear, the way you spend your free time, and how your raised your family, would they notice a significant difference between you and the world?”

Mike leads us this week, discussing possible responses to that question and others.  Also, study the following passages in advance:

Mark 10:21, Luke 6:20, 24 and Luke 18:25

We’re back at the front parlor room of The Cornwell Center this Friday.  Please gather starting at 7:30 am.  Lesson starts at 7:45 am.

Peace!

  1. Hey Mike,

    I hope that God used, grew and challenged you while in Uganda. I prayed for you as God put you on my heart. Here is a new book that you may be interested in. My pastor’s latest work. We are going to use it as the basis for a 12 week series at our Atlanta locations.
