Re:Verse reading–Luke 12:22-34 (day four)
This passage culminates in v. 31. Luke records the Lord’s words to consider the ravens…consider the lilies…don’t seek what you will eat…don’t focus on the things that will distract you. Verse 31 then says, “But seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you.”
The best commentary on Scripture is Scripture. In Matthew 6:33, in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus adds, “Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness.” When we are focused on God, and having our lives paint an accurate picture of His holiness, we will have our needs met. Out of reverence to God for what He has done for us, we should live our lives in obedience to Him.
Do you ever get distracted? Have you been given the riches of the gospel, but live as if you are a pauper? When we live our lives in the grace of the Lord, a lost world can witness the truth of His word, in our lives. We give glory to God’s name!
