Invest Your Short For Your Long

July 17

“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.”
Matthew 6:31-33

The people of “the world” live their lives around what they can accumulate. And they’re never satisfied. They will always be thinking of the next thing they want.

Repentance is a total change of heart. Repentance means you stop living for what you can accumulate. and  you turn your heart to the things of the kingdom of God, and begin to follow him. He has promised that if you seek FIRST his kingdom and righteousness, you won’t have to worry about your physical needs, He WILL add them to you.

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth,
where moth and rust destroy
and where thieves break in and steal;
but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust destroys
and where thieves do not break in and steal.
FOR WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS,
THERE YOUR HEART WILL BE ALSO.”
Matthew 6:19-21

Use your short life here …as an investment for your forever life there. You’ll be so glad you did.
