Ash Wednesday treasures

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also,” says Jesus. God has invested great treasure in us, making us even out of the dust in the divine image; breathing life into our nostrils, even through God’s own Holy Spirit; creating in us clean hearts and new spirits; investing in a human body just to be among us, to touch us. God has invested great treasure in us, and where God’s treasure is, won’t the divine heart be/beat also?
