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.

    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.
  • UtahMcBride
    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.
