    Dose the earth really come to a end ond day for all. Like will the earth as we know it disappear?
  • S Spencer - in Reply on Matthew 6
    Hi Mark.. Revelation 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. Isaiah 65:17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. This should be what you're looking for, and there is several more scriptures on this.

    So, in verses one and two he is basically saying 'don't do charity to the poor just to increase your public image in front of your peers.' right? So, if you want to donate to the homeless don't go around tooting your own horn (bragging or boasting) to get people to think you're a good guy.

    If so, then I am already falling short of God's glory. I did a good deed a while back and I went and told almost everyone about it. I suppose I should repent for this. Great lesson Jesus gave here.
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 6
    Yes Johnny, you've understood this verse well. The point was that if we are genuinely concerned for another (whether a homeless person, a minister of God's Word, a poor friend or relative), we will do it quietly, even inconspicuously, because our motive is from love & that the praise from that needy person, goes to the Lord for touching some heart to help another one out. By alerting others to our 'good, generous acts of love' may indicate a false or dual motive for giving, to which the Lord says that you will not receive the praise of God.

    Though I think that from your experience the Lord's sees your conviction over this matter & the lesson you've learned, so that God's blessings will be multiplied to you for your consideration of others in the future. Blessings.
  • Jose Pantoja on Matthew 6:8
    We want a lot of things, and they are usually centered on US, or ourselves. God is really trying to open our view to look at others and pray for the needs of others. It is a scientifically proven fact that people gain more when giving than receiving. Sharing what is in our hearts is what he truly wants to hear.
  • J Paul Brown on Matthew 6:29
    I read Mathew 6 to say we should not pursue our personal needs, (food; shelter;housing)..Am I not understanding this..?
  • CC - in Reply on Matthew 6:29
    Bless you what it is saying is that you don't get so consumed in these thing that you don't seek God's kingdom in your life. Jesus got up great while before day and went into a solitary place and prayed before he started his day off. You have to seek personal needs such as food clothes and shelter. Daniel work was a great man and he put God first. Put God first and he will make sure you have the means to get what you need. Consider What I Say and the Lord Give You Understanding. Stay blessed!
  • Anthony - in Reply on Matthew 6:29
    It is a little more complex. What Jesus is saying is God is the great provider. And he is commissioning those to go out and perform God's work. It is not that we should not pursue our personal needs but that God will provide for his children just like he provides for nature. He gives us the ability to work to purchase the things we need. He gives us knowledge to be good stewards of the money we have. Everything we need, God already knows. If we become financially hindered due to the loss of work, God knows and already has a plan for us. We have to listen and use the knowledge and understanding given to us through the word and through prayer. If we are living for God, we will not go hungry..(it may be peanut butter sandwiches) but we will have food. We will have shelter..and we will have clothes.

    Psalms 37:25

    I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
  • Doug - in Reply on Matthew 6:29
    Food & Rainment. God/Christ only states He will provide food & raiment. Apostle Paul as well (1st Timothy 6:8)

    1st Epistle of Peter is written and starts out stating "to the strangers scattered" throughout... Why?

    This is not our world. Jesus states in the Gospel of John 14:3 that He has gone to prepare a place for us and is coming back to receive us to Himself. Again, this is not our home.
  • Andy - in Reply on Matthew 6:29
    Jesus says that we will live in Heaven if we gladly get executed for him.

    . . . Does that mean that we actually have to get persecuted?

    what you nationally
  • Thelma Denson on Matthew 6
    Enjoy reading the chapter if we put our trust in God. You will be lead astray.
  • Stanjett on Matthew 6:29
    Why would God want us to go hungry, even for a day? What good does fasting do?
  • Adam - in Reply on Matthew 6:29
    Fasting actually has many health benefits. Your body will enter into ketosis that will in a way purify your body and rid it of toxins and will also burn away fat. It also sharpens the mind. People forget this when they're used to having food in their stomach all the time, but when you go without for a couple days you will find extra mental clarity and sharpness. Conventional wisdom only a decade or more ago claimed the opposite, but experts have recently realized the many benefits.

    What does it mean sufficient unto the day is the evil there of?
  • Millard Lewis Powers - in Reply on Matthew 6:29
    It means that each day, we have enough to handle without taking on the problems of tomorrow or some other day. Therefore, we should live in the day we are in, because we cannot live in tomorrow until it gets here.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Matthew 6:29
    Brenda,

    Matthew 6:34 says to take no thought about tomorrow. There is a word used throughout the New Testament that has to do with our minds being distracted. It is the word MERIMNAO, and it has to do with the occupation of the attention of our minds. It can be anything, our jobs, our family, hobbies, or anything in our daily lives that keep our minds occupied and away from the things of the Lord.

    Jesus says don't even worry about it. Don't worry about tomorrow. Let tomorrow take care of itself. Where is our focus right now? And then He says "Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."

    What this is basically telling us is that we have enough to be concerned with today, the normal ordinary stresses of life. We're not to be concerned about tomorrow. Only the Lord knows what will come tomorrow, so why should we be worried about it. Besides, worrying about tomorrow does us no good at all. We are to place our complete trust in Christ, and trust that He will work out those future things that we are incapable of knowing. So, sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof simple means to just focus on the hardships of the present day and trust that Christ will not only work those things out but also the things of tomorrow.

    While we are called to be followers of Christ, We will find that the world does not except this value of faith toward God.Is it possible to have joy and happiness and be a christian in the strictest sense?I believe that God wants all people to experience the joy found in life and the love we share with one another.It has been my experience that when we live outside the faith, time of temptation and sorrow manifest itself, and will dominate and move us further away from His love!Are we looking somewhere else for happiness or do we worry about things we have no control over!When we examine Christs life, we will see a love that passes understanding!His love for his Father, and the joy he experienced when He did the will of His Father, even the power to heal Gods children!We to can experience this same love when we worship the savior!I personally would find no greater joy than to heal someone or give someone hope.Mans nature is contrary to God, and is evil from the beginning. This is why we need to abide in Christ, being led by His Holy Spirit. For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.
  • Carleton - in Reply on Matthew 6:29
    I like this proverb, it seems to apply to all parts of life: Proverbs 11:1

    A false balance is an abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight.
