(This is an addendum to this morning’s post.)
Isn’t it wonderful when God steps in and reaffirms a truth?
When Jesus said, “Take no care of your life, what you eat, what you wear, how you live”, we cringe and then we convince ourselves that God doesn’t understand our particular circumstances. Our circumstances are different.
Aren’t they always?
But our God knows our circumstances better than we do. If we don’t believe that, what would be the point of trusting Him?
All God is really saying is this, in all things, put Him first. That doesn’t mean we ignore our circumstances in a Pollyanish kind of way. Or that we don’t address certain issues. It just means that we keep God in the center of it all. We do that in a number of ways. But that’s for another post.
We are never free from the demands of an encroaching world. We just have to make sure God doesn’t get shoved aside in the process.
God bless and I hope you have a good day.
