Help me unpack, would ya?
This morning in my quiet time, I was reading from Matthew (remember? Salad and truffles at this house, this week)
Too often I think I end up reading Scripture with only half a brain – I’ve read it before, I’m familiar with it, so I only read it with half my brain intact. This morning, my brain engaged anew…
Matthew 6:31 begins “Therefore do not be anxious, saying, “What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “What shall we wear?” For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
Help me unpack this – what does it mean to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness? (I’m still praying, studying and seeking for some clarity on this – I will be back later, but I’d LOVE to hear what your understanding of this is. Violet, dear…where are you??)
