“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:33-34
So often we have a desire to respond to a sermon, a podcast and/or a devotion when we are encouraged by something we hear or read. I believe this is the Holy Spirit prompting us to live into God’s will for our lives. We are all called to serve and share the love of Christ. This is a daily call and can be fulfilled without ever leaving your house.
Our scripture focus today reminds us to seek God and the righteousness of God, so that we can be filled with the Holy Spirit. When our hearts are in sync with the heart of Christ, we are able to offer the love and grace of Jesus more readily to others. When we let the worries of tomorrow steal our focus and our joy, we let them form a barrier to being able to live out God’s call.
I pray that as we seek God’s will, we do so with God’s heart for his people.
