Guarding our treasure
The Christian Science Monitor
I remember when my son, then a toddler, would build elaborate structures. Those structures were a treasure to him, and he'd guard them vigilantly. All of us have a treasure that we should defend just as vigorously. It's not a retirement account or a house or a valuable piece of art. It's our thinking—perhaps the most precious treasure we have, regardless of our material state of affairs.
It is really thought that determines what's in our hearts. It is thought that leads us forward or holds us back. Good thoughts always precede good actions; good actions do not follow poor thinking. The quality of our thinking really determines our character. Is there any doubt about our thinking being the most valuable treasure that we have?
