Treasures and Anxiety
Jesus knew if we focus on material possessions and wealth, we would find ourselves caught up with worry and anxiety. In this section of the Sermon on the Mount we find a clear divide, a choice. We can either choose to pursue things that will cause us worry, things that eventually turn to dust, or we can seek out those treasures of eternal worth and value, a process leading to peace. We cannot, however, serve two masters. The choice is ours.
