Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven
where moth and rust cannot destroy and thieves cannot break in and steal

Atheism is not the opposite!

The opposite of theism is not atheism, it’s idolatry.” In other words, everyone is going to worship something. We were created to be worshippers, as birds were created to fly and rivers were created to flow. It’s what we do. The question then, is who or what will be the object of your worship? Here are a few questions that might objectively reveal your god:
What is the area of your life where you are most disappointed? An area where there is a disproportionate amount of disappointment reveals where we have put our hope. Show me what you have put your hope in and I’ll introduce you to your god.
Where do you go for comfort when life gets hard? Maybe you open up the fridge for a little comfort food or you stop by and pick up a six-pack on the way home from work. Maybe it’s in the arms of a stranger.
Where do you make financial sacrifices? Where your money goes shows what god you are worshipping. The Bible puts it this way “where your treasure is there your heart will be.”
