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".

    Dear Sister Thelma; It is a comfort like healing balm to read good words like yours! While so many times I am compelled to answer, reprove, rebuke and correct, many misled and obstinate who have set themselves to oppose and contradict the truth of the Glad Tidings; the good and wholesome words of the Saints are like cold waters to a thirsty soul, and so timely! The LORD bless and keep you!

    ***LUKE 21:36 watch you therefore --- and pray always that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass and to stand before THE SON OF MAN *** 2 THESSALONIANS 1:11 wherefore we pray always for you that our GOD would count you worthy of this calling and fulfill all the good pleasure of HIS goodness and the work of faith with power
  • A disciple
    Jot; Just in case there are actually multitudes of sincere Believers with good and honest hearts; who really do think deeply about WHAT they pray; don't you think it might be a "little" arrogant to presume that praying the "Our Father" is heathen repetition? Leading the Assembly in prayer of the very words of our Lord is a good thing! Maybe you need to start praying, instead of attacking prayer.
