Devotional Thought for Today – 01/13/2021

Yes, I am back at the college grind, so we are back to short versions of my devotional.

Matthew 6:25-34

While there is no doubt that in this portion of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus is speaking on Anxiety, (You can search those in the Search Box in the upper right) but we will not be looking at that today. 

Our text v.28a says (KJV) And why take ye thought for raiment? The (AMP) And why are you worried about clothes?  The (ESV) text above And why are you Anxious about Clothing?  The obvious is the anxious worrisome theme Jesus is addressing. But I read this morning thinking how much effort we put into clothes and other material things and not into Godly things.

The context of these verses is that God has our backs if He can make the flowers bloom clothes the lilies beautifully, how much more so will He take care of the needs of His faithful servants. 

So today’s question is where do your priorities lie? In clothes and other material things, or in the treasures of the kingdom of God, Matthew 6:19-21.
