‚ÄúSo do not worry, saying, ‚ÄòWhat shall we eat?‚Äô or ‚ÄòWhat shall we drink?‚Äô or ‚ÄòWhat shall we wear?‚Äô For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 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.‚Äù
(Matt 6:31-34 NIV)
I was talking to some people last night, and two days ago at lunch, and just wondering what this looks like? I’m not sure if I’ve met the person with kids and family that has lived this out. Or maybe I have, and it’s just a very secret, unnoticeable thing. What does this mean in our culture today? No savings account? No retirement plan? No $400 a month health insurance?
It is definitely more of a heart thing than a rules thing, such as saying it’s “unbiblical” to have health insurance or an IRA, etc. But when a person lives like Matthew 6 on the inside, what does it look like on the outside?
