Lent: Treasure

I can't speak for anyone else, but I usually think of treasure as something valuable that a person owns. Usually that means money; for some people, it means mementos of happy times, like movie tickets or photos; and when we want to sound like our priorities are right, we'll say our children are our chief treasures.

Thing is, the people who hold onto their treasures are called "misers," or maybe "hoarders." Real treasure isn't what we hang onto for fear of losing, it's what we give generously from the soul. We give it to the rest of the world because we want to enrich the world and improve it by the gifting.

What's your treasure?
