Seek First HIS KINGDOM And HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS





Matthew 6:16-34 NIV







Fasting







16“When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I Tell you, they have received their reward in full. 17But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, 18so that it will not be obvious to others that you are fasting, but only to your FATHER, WHO Is Unseen; and your FATHER, WHO Sees what is done in secret, Will Reward you.












Treasures in Heaven






19“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, 
where moths and vermin destroy, 






and where thieves break in and steal. 






20But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 






21For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.


22“The eye is the lamp of the body. 



If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. 23But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!


24“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both GOD and money.












Do Not Worry




25“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 than food, and the body more than clothes? 

26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your Heavenly FATHER Feeds them. 






Are you not much more valuable than they? 


27Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your lifee?


28“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If that is How GOD Clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, Will HE not much more Clothe you—you of little faith? 






31So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your Heavenly FATHER Knows that you need them. 


33 But seek first HIS KINGDOM and HIS Righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 






34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.







Prayer to JESUS






LORD JESUS, 



YOUR WORD Is so true to us.



Let us live our life every day only seeking after YOU, YOUR KINGDOM and YOUR Righteousness, not running after money, fame and pleasure of this world.





Amen.
