Your heart follows your wallet. That makes it really easy to determine what we really value. All we need to do is look at our credit card statements, checkbooks, and bank accounts. They will be a more accurate indication of the priorities of our heart than any test we could take. Jesus knew this and said as much. His desire was for us to experience as much of the Kingdom of Heaven in our own lives right now as possible. That's why He told us to give our money toward Kingdom purposes and causes. He knew our heart follows our money. You're kidding yourself if you think you can experience the best of the Kingdom without giving money into it, or by only giving a token amount when the offering plate passes by. Jesus did not say your wallet follows your heart. Your treasure leads. Your heart follows. One of the simplest and best ways to move towards experiencing more of the Kingdom of God is to find a ministry that is doing good Kingdom work and commit to supporting them financially. Start where you can and trust God to show you how to increase it over time. The more consistent you get with this, the more your heart will experience the rest of the Kingdom too!
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.— Matthew 6:21 (WEB)
