More of the Message

I have found myself lingering in Matthew, soaking up bits of chapters instead of forging ahead. It feels like the words are seeping into my soul after a life-time of reading them.

Here's a bit from Matthew 6

If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers--most of which are never even seen--don't you think he'll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I'm trying to do here is get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God's giving. People who don't know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don't worry about missing out. You'll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.
