Memory Verse

“Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also”

Audio Icon   Matthew 6:21



In this episode, Grandpa Anole reminds Liz of the story of David, who started thinking more about his own fame and strength than God’s commandments.

The prophet Ezekiel warned another king about the dangers of treasures. God blessed the king of Tyre with a good business sense to trade well and create wealth for the kingdom. The king, however, soon grew to love the gold and jewels more than he loved God and his people. In Ezekiel 28:11-19, Ezekiel told the king that God was going to take away not only all of his treasure, but even his life!

God gives you good gifts to enjoy and share with others. However, you must be careful not to make those things your treasure. Look at the gifts God has given you. Are they making you into a better friend, or are they making you proud?

Want to dig deeper and learn about God’s gifts? Check out James 1:17, 1 Peter 4:10 and Matthew 7:7.


Make a misplaced item treasure hunt for someone in your family.

For example, take a fork from the silverware drawer. In the silverware drawer where the fork belongs, put a screwdriver. Where the screwdriver belongs, put a toothbrush. Where the toothbrush belongs, put an apple. Where the apple belongs, put a stuffed animal. Continue as long as you have ideas. Put a Bible as the last item to remind you that it is the greatest treasure.

Give the “hunter” the first item (the fork) and tell them to put it away. As they put away each misplaced item, the clues should lead them to the next, and eventually lead them to God’s Word!
