Matthew 6:19-34

“Seek first God’s kingdom,” this is the heart of the Sermon on the Mount, it draws us deeply into Jesus’ intensive instruction of His disciples, His concern for them and, by extension, for us. There on the mountainside, His voice carried to those who were waiting attentively to hear His spoken Word, as He taught them the essentials of life lived in simplicity, sincerity, and singleness of heart.

In The Imitation of Christ, Thomas a’ Kempis wrote, “We must diligently search into, and set in order both the outward and inward man, because both of them are of importance to our progress in godliness.”

This is true for us as well. Our need is to find that quiet place with Jesus. It is there that we will be in the presence of our Lord and Savior, as He teaches us His ways. Psalm 32:8 speaks clearly into our souls: “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.”
