This month was one of those months that things were a little tight. I know not to worry because I know God will fulfill all of our needs. But even as Christians we have a tendency to worry about things as mundane as the weather, traffic, politics, and even how we will be perceived by the world. We worry about other things as well that have more bearing on our lives. How much time have you put into worrying about your balance sheets at work, your CSI scores, as kids we worried about test scores.
All of these things bring acceptance in the world. It is good for us to want to do well and succeed in life, as long as we don't put all of our life into succeeding. When we do well we reflect Christ living in our lives. That is the key to the things you put emphasis on, am I bringing glory to God in the things I do? In achieving my success did I apply biblical principles to my practices?
God wants us to succeed in all that he blesses us to do. It brings him pleasure to see his children do well, just as we swell with pride when we see our children do well. The key is to apply Christ in all we do. If we do that everything our hands touch will prosper.
Have a blessed week!
25Therefore 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?
26Behold 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?
27Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
