Matthew 6 – What If We Are Viewing God All Wrong?Matthew 6 –

In his message called the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus describes life in God’s Kingdom.

He continues to push against religion and move everything into the category of relationship when it comes to God, who He teaches us to see as our Father. He takes religious acts and turns them upside down. First and foremost, our priority needs to be to seek the Kingdom of God first in our life.

Giving to the poor, fasting, prayer, and our finances are all seen in the context of a Heavenly Father who knows what we do and rewards us accordingly.

As we trust Him more, we will experience more of His Kingdom coming to earth as it is in heaven.

Matthew 6 Notes:

What if how we view God has been all wrong?

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus describes life in God’s Kingdom. To become perfect or another translation of that word from Matthew 5:48 is “mature”  we need God’s help. 

So how do we get His help?

Jesus continues to push against religion and move everything into the category of relationship when it comes to God, who He teaches us to see as our Father.

He takes religious acts and turns them upside down. First and foremost, our priority needs to be to seek the Kingdom of God first in our life. Giving to the poor, fasting, prayer, and our finances are all seen in the context of a Heavenly Father who knows what we do and rewards us accordingly. We give, pray, and fast out of gratitude for our relationship with our Heavenly Father and all He has done for us. Our prayers aren’t long to do lists for God to accomplish or superstitious repetitions. 

We can trust Him. Just as He provides for the flowers of the field and birds of the air, He will provide all we need – not necessarily all we want. As we trust Him more, we will experience more of His Kingdom coming to earth as it is in heaven. 

Let worry be a reminder to take our needs to our Heavenly Father. 

“Worrying is praying for things you don’t want.”

Donna Stoneham, PH.D.

“prayer is a matter of coming into living contact with Jesus.” – Teresa of Avila
