"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? Matthew 6:25

Seems to be a practical advice, but to think about it, it seems quite impractical too. How is it even possible not to worry about what we will eat or drink or wear. Isn't that the first thing that comes to our minds when we start the day? - when we plan a get together? - when we are invited to an event?

We don't really think, "Oh I am alive and well that's enough to make it through the day" do we? May be we should. I guess the emphasis is on the words "do not worry" Of course we need to eat, drink and dress well, but what we learn here is that it shouldn't be our focus.

As we read towards the end of the same passage in verse 33, our focus should be on 'Seeking His Kingdom' then all these things will be taken care of by Him.

Happy Thursday folks!

    That's all very good and neat sounding but what about the people all over the world who put Jesus first in their lives and do not have the necessities to sustain life. How do I understand "and all of these things shall be added unto you."?

    I understand your concern Rutheross. As I was reading your comment this is the verse that came to my mind:

    "My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory" Phil 4:19 and came across this sermon by Rev. Spurgeon:

    May the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, guard our hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4:7)

    In His love,
