  • The Wisdom of Lilies
    Friday, August 18, 2023
    Imagine driving your car around so you can fill up with gas. It defeats the purpose. You don't drive to get gas, you get gas to drive. If you're living to survive, or living to make a living, it's the same thing. Matthew 6 teaches us, that worrying about all these things, makes us forget the purpose of life. Messiah said, "Consider the lilies of the field, they don't toil or spin." They just live and glorify God. If you're living, worrying how to live, you've got it backwards. If you really want to live for God, break out of focusing on how you're living or trying to survive and seek first the kingdom of God. Get beyond survival and live for God. Stop worrying about 'how' - that's God's job. Do and seek His will. Get beyond yourself and into the purposes of God and you'll start fulfilling your purpose. Selfishness and living to make a living is like driving in order to fill up on gas. Stop worrying about your life and start living your life. Because God didn't call you to live your life at the gas station.
    From Message #542 - The Lilies of the Field
    Today's Mission
    Put the cares of life in the Lord's hands. Stop existing wrapped up in the issues of survival. And start living!
