Where’s Your Treasure?
During my last trip to India, I had the opportunity to minister and speak to a group of Christian
leaders. Everywhere I went during this last trip, I noticed that people are very anxious and
concerned about tomorrow. People are searching, yet many of them don’t know what they are
searching. However, these Christian leaders I spoke to were very joyous, hopeful and excited
about tomorrow. They have very little material possessions, but they have joy in their heart that
no one can destroy or steal from them. This reminded me of what Christ said to his disciples “Do
not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves
break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not
destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart
will be also”.
The graduates of Southern Asia Leadership Institute I met at this conference do represent these
values. They pursue something greater than themselves. We started building the student
dormitory at the campus over a year ago. It is nearing completion and ready for occupancy for
the students. We hope to train and graduate many more students who will be a beacon of light
and make a difference to the community around them.
