March 31, 2020 – Matthew 6:31-33

Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:31-33.

In this chapter, we find Jesus teaching the disciples how to pray. It includes, Give us each day that day’s bread—no more, no less. Verse 11. 

But godliness with contentment is great gain,  for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content.  I Timothy 6-8.  

How can we be contented? The Word of God fills us with the Joy of the Lord. Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!  Psalm 34:8. 

When Mother gave us scriptures to learn, we didn’t always understand them. My little brother’s verse comes from this chapter.  Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. This verse following is a choice for the eyes.  The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light.” Matthew 6:22. Where do we find this light?

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12.  We choose what to see and whether to walk in His light and be filled with thanksgiving  or, walk in discontent.  Your Heavenly Father knows what you need before you ask Him. 

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself.  Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Matthew 6:34.
