Happy Thanksgiving!

Here is a great post on Thanksgiving by blogger and pastor Mark D. Roberts.

Joel 2:21-27 •  Psalm 126 • 1 Timothy 2:1-7 • Matthew 6:25-33

Matthew 6:25-33

25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing?26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?

28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?

31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

This is one of those tough passages, because it hits most of us where we live.  Jesus reminds us that he has given us everything that we need.  We don’t need to worry about all that stuff.  He will take care of us.  Our responsibility is to take care of God’s Kingdom and live the life Jesus has called us and everything else will take care of it self.

In case you are wondering, I wrote this post on Tuesday night, so that I wouldn’t have to log in on Thursday.  By the time you read this, I will be with my family celebrating the good things that God has given to us.  Blessed be the name of the Lord!
