Today’s Thoughts: Jesus in Matthew’s Gospel provides us with a spiritual blueprint for living life. He invites us to disconnect ourselves from the things that the world finds important like material goods and wants, and become more trusting of God, like the birds of the sky and the flowers of the fields.
Jesus invites those listening and us to focus on things that really matter and not those that are distractions. Jesus challenges those listening and us to live more simply, less materialistically, and more spiritually. Jesus encourages us to be more faith-filled and less troubled by the things we are powerless to change.
In other words, it is not the temporary and fleeting things in life but the consent presence of God that can help us come to the source of real power. It is coming to the realization that we cannot serve two masters. It is making the conscious choice to put God at the center of our life. It is trusting in the reality that when we are weak we are strong. It is not worrying about tomorrow but living today!
Have a great Saturday everyone!
