Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth. . . . But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven. . . . For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. - Matthew 6:19-21 (NIV)
During the first two years of my camp ministry, my bed was small, squeaky, and lumpy. When I moved to a new camp, I celebrated by purchasing the nicest mattress I could afford — and with it a custom bed frame. It was the best bed I’d ever had.
I can use my earthly gifts for a heavenly purpose.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
