Seek His Righteousness

"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 will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of it's own."  Matthew 6:33 & 34

This is the last of a 4 part "Worry Wart" series.

God is not saying that food and clothing aren't important - but He is telling us where our priorities should be.  Our first motive must be the will of God.  Our focus must be on "His kingdom and His righteousness" - God will take care of the rest.

The last part is ironic: "don't worry" BUT "each day will worry about itself".  And - to be perfectly honest, the statement "each day has enough trouble of it's own" is very worrisome to me.  As I previously stated, I struggle with worry - it is one of my weaknesses.  However, let's go back to our focus - if we hone in on the trouble of the day, then we won't be able to trust God.  Focus on our heavenly Father, on Jesus His Son and on the Holy Spirit - then we will be able to feel God's prompting and we will be able to hear what He wants us to do.

Let's take one day at a time and focus on God.
