Wesley's Notes for Matthew 6:34


6:34 The morrow shall take thought for itself - That is, he careful for the morrow when it comes. The evil thereof - Speaking after the manner of men. But all trouble is, upon the whole, a real good. It is good physic which God dispenses daily to his children, according to the need and the strength of each.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 6:34


Mt 6:34 Take, therefore, no thought for the morrow. Again, it should read, as in the Revised Version, "Have no anxiety about tomorrow". The morrow shallll take thought for the things of itself. Not "take care of itself", but bring its own cares, anxieties and troubles. We should not foolishly increase our present burden by borrowing trouble about tomorrow.

    Ana d..it is sometimes hard to love people, and if our standing in Heaven was decided by what we do, and think, we would all surely fail, the Kingdom of Heaven will be yours, not because of yourself, but because of Christ alone, ..let no man boast that he is able to earn Heaven, none are able. Believe in Him with your heart, and be saved. Jesus said many times "Do not be afraid".
  • Jeff Berry
    Ana d, no doubt every time someone reads your post they will say a prayer for you! We should all be as burdened as you are. In fact, your burden makes me think that you are going to be okay. Blessings my friend!
