The Pagans Run After All These Things

“Your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things!” Matthew 6:32

“Our gracious heavenly Father bids to us cast all our cares upon Him – assuring us that He cares for us!

“His EYE is ever upon us! His eye is a Father’s eye, which is always quick, and always affects His heart. He has set His eyes upon us for good. His eye is ever over us – fixed immediately upon us!

“His EAR catches…
our every sigh,
our every groan,
our every desire!
It is always open to our cry. He listens to us – as one most tenderly and deeply interested in us. He knows our every need–and He intends to supply us!

“Our heavenly Father has forever determined – that none of His children shall lack any good thing – and that He will never withhold any good thing from them.

“So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things!” Matthew 6:31-32

Christmas 2010

May your day be filled blessing as you ponder the wondrous
Gift God has given us in His Son, Jesus Christ.

“Merry Christmas! The words fall idly, perhaps, from too many careless lips; they are uttered by those who give it no deeper meaning than a passing friendly salutation of the moment; and yet every tongue that repeats the phrase bears unconscious witness to the power of the Gospel – those good-tidings of great joy to all mankind.”

~ Susan Fenimore Cooper, Rural Hours
