“2 Things”

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

“2 Things”

Matthew 6:25-33 New Living Translation (NLT)

25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?

28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?

31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

Further Thought: As Kingdom citizens, today’s passage reminds us of our two responsibilities:

#1. We are to seek the Kingdom. What has God provided in his word as the solution?

#2. We are to seek his righteousness. Now that we know God’s solution, we must obey and stay in agreement.

So, as we align our lives with the two responsibilities above, Jesus said in today’s passage it is then the Kingdom’s responsibility to take care of everything you need that pertains to life, and that is pleasing to God, according to 2 Peter 1:3-4. So, let’s not complicate our lives by adding any additional requirements to what Jesus said in today’s passage. 

Have a great day and keep chewing on God’s Word.
