Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal; but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Matthew 6:19-21 (NRSV)
What needs to stay the same in life? Wouldn’t it be great to go back to the good old days when life was easy? When was that, exactly? When was that time that you might have said to yourself, “Man, life is really easy and great right now. I don’t ever want anything to change.” Personally, I’ve never had such a time. On the contrary, there are days when life is so hard that I think there must have been a time in the past when it was easier.
No matter where we are in life or what goes on, we can count on one thing. Life is going to change. Even our relationship with our Creator will change as we cultivated a deeper spirituality. Because of that connection, we can adapt to all the changes that come during a lifetime.
The greatest treasures of life are not wrapped up in the creation around us. They are wrapped up in the quality of what we do with creation. The quality of the day ahead of us depends on our adaptability to the subtle or major changes that will inevitably happen. Release attachment to things staying the same or to great times of the past. The best is yet to come.
Stephen Hawking said, “Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.”
