What Are You Looking At? Day 7

You have a choice.

You can either read the reflection below or listen to me talk in the video here:












Day 7

Matt 6:19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For 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. 23 But 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.

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? 26 Look 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? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labour or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. 30 If 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? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For 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. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.


We have all heard the expression “you are what you eat”, but this is true for much more than our diets. It is our daily choice to trust that God knows what we need and will provide, but we are often consumed with filling our lives with things or we are filled with worry and anxiety about things. We have so much and yet we worry about not having enough. The key focus of this passage is verse 33, “seek first his kingdom”. It is when we can have our eyes fixed on the author and perfector of our faith, that we can actually let go of the worries and striving that so often plague our lives. Jesus had a firm grasp on this. Why do you think that he would be able to sleep on a boat during a storm? Jesus knew his father would watch over him and provide what he needed, so the question we have is, can do the same?


You are invited to pray or to be prayed for. As we learn more about who Jesus is let us then enter into prayer and be shaped by him.
