Matthew 6 Bible Study: Do Not Worry, God Cares For You
A LOOK INSIDE
The lesson title is a great summation of all of the scripture for this week. Our society is generally a society of worriers. If we don't have problems of our own we watch soap operas and take on problems that some writer has created just to make people watch the show. When we can't work out our own problems we watch "reality" shows to see what kind of spin that the show can put on their form of staged, and we can be certain, somewhat scripted reality. If you will choose to live your own life with God at your side and in your heart, today's scriptures ensure that your needs will be provided.
BREAK IT DOWN
ARE YOU MORE IMPORTANT THAN BIRDS?
Matthew 6:25-27Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
The focus of verse 25 seems to be the Spirit living within you. Notice the last part of this verse where the question about life and body are posed. What else, beyond food and clothing, does a person truly need? Correct, Immanuel, God with us. As a Christian, you have the Holy Spirit living in your heart and guiding your thoughts and actions.
