People's Bible Notes for Matthew 6:32


Mt 6:32 For after all these things do the Gentiles seek. This worldliness, anxiety, and distrust, might do in heathen, who have no knowledge of a heavenly Father, but you have a heavenly Father, and he knows that ye "need of all these things".

    The Lord's Prayer teaches us not to be selfish in our prayers,i.e making a prayer that is too much self centered without giving praise to God for his glory.

    Lent is in the bible 7 times in ex 12:36, Deut 23; 13, 1st Sam 1 : 28, 1st Sam 2:20, Jer 15:10.

    Lent: As it is true that the New Test. doesn't set aside times or seasons to fast, it doesn't prohibit the church from fasting together, either. It is interesting that Jesus switches between singular "thou" to plural "ye" when talking about fasting: I think he is addressing the church, not just the individual. He isn't teaching absolute secrecy but rather a quiet attitude. Lent isn't bad or good.

    Hi Jenny when taking about God it best to use Capital letters for He , Jesus so on when referring to Him it respectful and show Jesus is all powerful so confess and repent it to Jesus and change then all wrongs and it would be ok

    Verse 33 shows that we need to put Jehovah God first in our lives. Material things have their place, but not first place.
