III. Bottomline: Matthew 6:25-34:
A-1. Matthew 6:25-34 – Jesus said for us NOT to worry about our life; what we are going to eat, drink, or wear! God takes care of the birds, flowers, and grass of the fields; therefore, He WILL take care of us (Matthew 6:25-31). If we spend our time, worrying about our life, that shows how little faith we have in God (v30). People who do not know God (unbelievers), seek after the things (v32) in verse 25. We who KNOW God, should seek first after God’s Kingdom; the things of Him, so we can know His righteous ways, and not assume we know what His righteousness way of living is! We need to make sure, what WE THINK is God’s righteousness, REALLY is his righteousness! We CANNOT live righteous, without Jesus, because He is our Righteousness; our righteousness ONLY comes through accepting Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior! Once we seek first God’s Kingdom and His righteousness, THEN, ALL the things we NEED, WILL be GIVEN to us by God (v33)! Also, we are NOT to worry about tomorrow; tomorrow has its own troubles (v34) – God got us and will NEVER let us go!!
