Scriptures for today

“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. (Matthew 6:31-34 NKJV)

And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:14 NIV)

Now when it was day, He departed and went into a deserted place. And the crowd sought Him and came to Him, and tried to keep Him from leaving them; but He said to them, “I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for this purpose I have been sent.” And He was preaching in the synagogues of Galilee. (Luke 4:42-44 NKJV)

My name will be great among the nations, from where the sun rises to where it sets. In every place incense and pure offerings will be brought to me, because my name will be great among the nations,” says the Lord Almighty. “But you profane it by saying, ‘The Lord’s table is defiled,’ and, ‘Its food is contemptible.’ And you say, ‘What a burden!’ and you sniff at it contemptuously,” says the Lord Almighty. “When you bring injured, lame or diseased animals and offer them as sacrifices, should I accept them from your hands?” says the Lord. “Cursed is the cheat who has an acceptable male in his flock and vows to give it, but then sacrifices a blemished animal to the Lord. For I am a great king,” says the Lord Almighty, “and my name is to be feared among the nations. (Malachi 1:11-14 NIV)

  1. Great quotes! The first is my favorite! It is a warning against materialism, and is saying that God is sufficient for us. Worrying gets us nowhere. It is good to plan, but it is not good to be frantic and worried. That is what Pagans do, and worldly people. I to make these verses one of my mottos in life. It shows lack of faith, worrying. If you trust in God, you shall never want. The sparrows of the field never want, nor the grass enrobed in flowers, as Christ once said (paraphrased) . Indeed, this grass, covered in flowers, is in the field today, and gone tomorrow, but it was more beautiful than all the regalia of Solomon or any Earthly leader. And we are worth more than grass, or 1000 sparrows, who all receive their sustenance from God. Where there is a will, there is a way. Trust in God, and try hard in life, and He shall do the rest. Amen to that!

    And Malachi is a great prophecy about the coming of Christ, and the grafting on of the Gentiles to the New Testament Church. Indeed, Gentiles offer Him incense and worship today, and it is sweet-smelling to Him. All for our Lord.

    Let God keep you like He does the sparrows.
    Amen.
