Birds Don’t Worry

Good Friday Morning.  Here’s Today’s Nugget to chew on:

“Birds Don’t Worry”

Matthew 6:25-27, 31-33 Living Bible (TLB) & New King James Version (NKJV)

25 “So my counsel is: Don’t worry about thingsfood, drink, and clothes. For you already have life and a body—and they are far more important than what to eat and wear. 26 Look at the birds! They don’t worry about what to eat—they don’t need to sow or reap or store up food—for your heavenly Father feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than they are. 27 Will all your worries add a single moment to your life?

31-32 “So don’t worry at all about having enough food and clothing. Why be like the heathen? For they take pride in all these things and are deeply concerned about them. But your heavenly Father already knows perfectly well that you need them, 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

Further Thought:  Today’s passage reminds us of the two priorities God has given us:

#1 Seek first the Kingdom:  Before you start to worry, find out what your constitution [God’s Word] has to say about what you are facing.

#2 And His righteousness:  So, whatever your constitution says, obey it. Obedience is how we remain in right standing in the Kingdom.

Let’s remember this is Jesus speaking in today’s passage.  He said when we seek to know and apply what our constitution says, we permit the King to manifest Himself in our lives, and all we are seeking will be provided.  I don’t know about you, but if the Birds don’t worry and God takes care of them, I’m certainly not going to spend another minute worrying.  

Have a great day and keep chewing on God’s Word.  By the way, I am preparing to preach a message on 4 Feb 24, so I will post the next nugget on 5 Feb 24. 

Additional references:  Isaiah 1:19 and Proverbs 4:20-22
