Wednesday, May 9

All these other things will be added to you.—Matt. 6:33.

 

Why could Jesus say the above? He explained in the preceding verse: “Your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things,” meaning the necessities of life. Jehovah can easily anticipate our individual needs regarding food, clothing, and shelter, even before we become aware of them. (Phil. 4:19) He knows which piece of our clothing will wear out next. He knows what our dietary requirements are and what would be adequate shelter for us, given the size of our family. Jehovah will see to it that we have what we really need. Yes, we can be ever confident that if we do what we are supposed to do—give spiritual interests priority in our life—Jehovah will not hold back what is good from us. Our “godly devotion” should prompt us to be content with “food and clothing,” or “sustenance and shelter.”—1 Tim. 6:6-8; ftn. w16.07 1:17, 18

We should not be anxious about our basic necessities. Jehovah knows that they are needs,  not wants and so we have to acquire them in order to live. But then, He expects us to put our service to Him before these essential necessities. This means even our basic needs should not come in the way of our spiritual activities. Jah knows we need them to survive and He will bless our work so that we will not go entirely hungry, not be deprived of clothes to wear or not have a place to lay our heads.
