Scripture

Matthew 6:19-34

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What attitude does Jesus command in regard to riches (19-24)? What promise does He make regarding essential needs, and how should that affect us (25-34)?

Application

Am I materialistic, or do I focus on the things that will last in eternity? Do I worry and fret about basic necessities, or do i trust god to provide all of my needs as He promised?

Prayer

Dear Father, It is so easy for me to be distracted by the riches and cares of this life. I confess that I too often make the things of earth more important than eternal concerns. Strengthen me to focus on what will last and bring You glory, and as I do that, give me faith to trust you to take care of me. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

Pray to BLESS!

One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries.

  • Moy & Janeth Ortiz
  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luc)
  • Keith Rast

Ministry:

  • Boise Rescue Mission

CLF:

  • That we will be people who are devoted to giving to the Lord’s work and to anyone who has a need.

Community: Pray for orphans and children in foster care…

  • that they would come to know the adoptive Father-heart of God
  • that they would be positively influenced by Christian workers
  • that God would bring Christian friends alongside them
  • that they would come to salvation
  • that they would be adopted by godly parents
