Good morning all,
The word of the day is “foremost.” Jesus talks about some pretty important stuff in these couple of chapters in Matthew. In this passage he addresses the issue of worry and concern. It doesn't matter what time period about which we are talking; these themes and feelings seem to be reoccurring. So, when his followers bring up this issue, he addresses it pretty directly.
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
This is a pretty clear message from JC. He understands that there are going to be cares and concerns that his people face. He also knows that these will never go away. But, if we keep a correct perspective God is going to make sure that we are on the right track. My question is: what are the things in your life that you seek first. Whatever is foremost on your mind is probably one of those most important items. My mentor used to remind me that the most important stuff and our lives is what we are thinking about when we are thinking about nothing. My prayer is that when you are resting and your mind is not racing, God permeates your thoughts and directs your ways.
Praying for you,
