April 5, 2019 – Matthew 6:31-32

“So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Matthew 6:31-32.

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? Matthew 6:26.  The sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5, 6, and 7 is filled with wisdom for living a rich life of a Believer in Jesus.  

Our hearts are troubled by many things that may take place in a week from now, or a year from now.  We use the word, worry, without thinking.  Three young children wanted to cross a busy highway to get the mail, and the Mother said, “Wait, a minute, so I can worry about you!”  Is is worry or praying?

Now this Mother’s favorite verses come from John 14:1 -3. Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.”  

Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.  Matthew 6:20-21.   

Where is your heart’s treasure stored?  What is your treasure in this life?

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need. “So don’t worry about tomorrow,  for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today. Matthew 6:33-34.
