In chapter 1 of Abundant Simplicity, Jan Johnson talks about treasure. Even though this is the very beginning of the book, it is probably one of my favorite truths I’ve taken away.
What do I treasure in my own life?
Do I treasure God?
I mean, not just on the outside: church attendance, Bible verses hanging in my home…
…but do I really treasure Him in my heart, with my time, with my devotion, my attention, my focus, my life?
And, if I take a good look at my own life, and see that there are things, at times, that seem to be more important than God, how do I go about changing my focus and my heart? How can I become fully devoted to God? He IS the gift…I want to love Him and treasure Him more than anything else…what is stopping me?
