In the debate when romney said “the place you put your money makes a pretty clear indication of where your heart is”, right before bashing obama for spending 90 billion on clean energy (when the real figure was about a third of that spaced over many years) I didn’t put 2 and 2 together but romney was making a biblical reference.
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matthew 6:21)
The thing is though that this is the passage in context, tell me if it sounds like romney follows it to you:
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness! No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.“
Where your treasure is there your heart will be also, and you cannot serve both god and money.
Where does romney’s heart lie?
Romney’s right there in the middle. You tell me.
