Weren't They Blessed Too?

But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6:20-21

There was a recent tornado in our general area. Friends and relatives will ask how we fared after the tornado. I tell them that my family and I weren't harmed and we're truly blessed and we are. The thing I was wondering, does having a tornado hit you mean that you weren't blessed?

I guess this speaks more of our perception of God only taking care of us when everything goes perfectly in our lives with no mishaps, illness, death, loss of jobs, etc. Now, is this even realistic? Not really! Mishaps, illness, death, and loss of jobs happen to Christians. So, does that mean that Christ has turned His back on us when these things happen? No, heaven forbid! He is always there despite all the things positive and negative that happen in our lives.

I think that part of my problem lies in my perception of being blessed. I thought that when I was finally thin, I would be blessed and the sun will shine every day, so-to-speak. What I found out was that Christ was with me even when I was heavy, didn't have a job, and didn't have the possessions. He loves us through thick and thin. I guess I had become a Bowl Full of Cherries Christian, thinking Christ was only with me when things were good. I have to focus on the true treasures in heaven and not worldly ones. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6:20-21
