Yes, you have it, Praise GOD first and everything falls into place.<quoted text>
Sounds like a prescription for famine-creation to me. And going around naked. Matthew would want mankind praying to God and praising him first and clothing and feeding themselves second. Not too practical, specially in a cold climate like mine LOL. If I wait around and just praise God, the Heavenly Father "knows what we need and these things will be added to you..."
In view of the above, what can I add? Sigh. Or do I have to interpret those words also? Seems to me God, in revelation to his "ghost writers", is not very articulate. One time, He tells the apostles to hate their families and now to just praise Him and wait for Him to feed and clothe us.
Could you imagine if all humans lived as Jesus commanded?
It would be Peace on Earth!
All of humankind were born with this purpose.
Love GOD and Love Others.......
The Greatest Commandment
34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. 35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied:“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[c] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it:‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[d] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Whose Son Is the Messiah?
41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, 42 “What do you think about the Messiah? Whose son is he?”
“The son of David,” they replied.
43 He said to them,“How is it then that David, speaking by the Spirit, calls him ‘Lord’? For he says,
44 “‘The Lord said to my Lord:
“Sit at my right hand
until I put your enemies
under your feet.”
45 If then David calls him ‘Lord,’ how can he be his son?” 46 No one could say a word in reply, and from that day on no one dared to ask him any more questions.
