Matthew 6:19-34 continues the telling of the sermon on the mount. Jesus spoke of storing up eternal, spiritual treasures, not physical riches, for you cannot serve two masters, you serve either God or money. Then Jesus continued by telling how foolish it is to worry about the future, concentrate on what is important, seek first the Kingdom of God, and God will take care of all the other things.
Ecclesiastes 3. There is a time for everything. The gift of God is that He has set eternity in our hearts, yet injustice seems to prevail.
Ecclesiastes 4. There is oppression but no comforter, there is vanity of selfish toil. There is value in having friends “a cord of three strands is not quickly broken,” yet, popularity passes away.
With all the double speak today, Psalm 12 is especially valid. The Lord has something to say about that.
Psalm 13 is only 6 verses, but there is a moving Anglican Chant written and sung. Enjoy.
