“Dealing With Life The Wrong Way”
Three Questions To Ask Myself:
What Is My Treasure?
“But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.”
Where Is My Focus?
“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light.”
Who Is My Master?
“No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.”
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
My Priorities Are Not Physical In Nature
“Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?”
God Has Placed Value In Me As A Person
“Are you not much more valuable than they [birds of the air] ?”
My “Worries” Do Not Add Quantity To Life
“Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?”
And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear? For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.
A disquieting, tormenting thought,
which hurries the mind hither and
thither, and hangs it in suspense;
which disturbs our joy in God, and is
a damp upon our hope in him; which
breaks the sleep, and hinders our en-
joyment of ourselves, of our friends,
and of what God has given us.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
A Worry Free Life Is Not A License For Laziness!
I have been called to…
seek his kingdom.
seek his righteousness.
“…and all these things will be given to you as well.”
