Treasure Hunt

4 Aug

aaatreasureHow do we treat our treasures? Treasured items do not end up covered in something sticky at the bottom of your purse, or under a dirty pile in the garage. We proudly display them, usually up high, in order to both admire them and keep them safe.

Today, Jesus tells us that our heart will be with our treasure. Is your marriage your treasure? Ask yourself:

  • Do I have a reverence for my marriage?
  • Do I put my marriage “up high” by prioritizing my spouse over work, activities, decisions, etc.?
  • Do I protect my marriage through prayer, positive speech, reconciling hurts, and establishing healthy boundaries with others?

If you answered no to these questions, you are not alone! Consider making an investment in your marriage by attending an enrichment activity: . Marital treasure collects compound interest far greater than financial treasure!

The foregoing is this week’s installment of the “Marriage Minute,” produced by the Marriage and Family Life Office of the Archdiocese, which attempts to view the Sunday readings through the lens of the Sacrament of Marriage.
