Have you ever noticed where God placed his treasure on this earth?
His treasure is not gold, but Gospel. Not silver, but Good News. Not hard, cold cash, but grace, love, and peace.
God could have left it with the politicians, those who are responsible for collecting taxes, building schools, and passing laws, but God didn’t.
God could have left his treasure with Zechariah, the high priest, but his unbelief took him out of the picture.
God left his treasure in the least likely of places: in the love, care, and nurture of a first century pregnant, peasant girl chosen as the “handmaiden of the Lord.” Mary
God’s treasure was left with the most powerless figure in the ancient world.
Doesn’t that tell you something about where God’s grace and treasure are to be found in today’s world? A God Poke

For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be found. Matthew 6:21
