When the shovel finally hits something solid, will all the time, energy, and money spent to find the treasure uncover our heart’s desire? In the counter-cultural teachings of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said that wherever we focus our hearts; there we’ll find our treasure—not the other way around. In Treasure, a four-week, churchwide stewardship program or small-group study, author Jacob Armstrong uses Matthew 6 to help you reexamine how what you think about money directly connects to your values, faith, and the health of your relationships. When our hearts are centered on God, our church, and our family, we’ve already struck it rich!
