Re: Verse reading–Matthew 6:19-34 (day four)
It was one of my Mother’s favorite verses…Matthew 6:33: “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” It embodies how we should live our lives…focused upon God and His purposes. Too often we get distracted from seeking His will and instead, focus upon our own needs, directions, or desires. Whether it is food, or clothing, or possessions…we need to leave that in God’s hands. When it says ‘they will be added to us’, it does not mean we will get the fanciest car or the latest fashions in clothing or even the most sumptuous meal. When we are focused upon God and His kingdom, even our desires and our level of contentment will be changed. God will be the Lord of every part of our lives. And what a wonderful promise…each day will take care of itself. How freeing is that? We have enough to take care of today…why worry about tomorrow?
