If you have a huge, life-changing treasure, you share it. If you can keep it to yourself, it is a small treasure, a personal treasure you want to be selfish about. But I guarantee that if it changes your life in a powerful way, you cannot help but share it.
This is why I share about my personal relationship with God, my Heavenly Father. It changed my life from a roller coaster to peace, from addiction to recovery from addiction, from victim to overcomer/servant, from anger and hurt to forgiveness and joy, from focusing on survival to focusing on eternal future.
Now a bunch of people see that as pushy or preachy. That to me sounds like coming from a place of hurt, disbelief, woundedness, ignorance, intolerance or guilt. When a valuable treasure is shared lovingly, it is meant in love as a sharing experience to say, “Hey this helped me a ton. Who knows, maybe it would help you?” I see that as sharing something helpful with helping in mind. That is the goal. To be the light to help other people. It may be interpreted as an attack. It is not meant to.
Everyone makes their own decision about the prominence of God in their life. I did and every person also does, whether they believe they are or not. I voice and can only voice my own experiences and hope I may be a help to others. I do not judge because I am not even close to perfect, which is the least possible qualification for such a role as judge. I just wanted to clarify. I found a very valuable treasure in closeness to God and just want to share how much that relationship improved my life.😄❤
