Matthew 6:31-34, “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 need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
In Matthew 6:33, Jesus tells us to seek first His Kingdom and His Righteousness. The rest will be added to us. Here is a Truth of the Kingdom, JUST ENOUGH is the amount of the Father. He is an Unlimited Source, but He gives in doses. In the Kingdom, the King has all things, but His children wait patiently for their Needs to be met. Outside the Kingdom, people desire MORE THAN ENOUGH so that they can be comfortable. There are two reasons why MORE THAN ENOUGH is not part of the Kingdom. First, MORE THAN ENOUGH leads to discontentment because discontentment is built on WANT not NEED. Remember this, what you WANT is what you Worship, and what you Worship is your God. Second, MORE THAN ENOUGH creates comfort and comfort relies on cushion. Where there is cushion, there is room to misplace your trust. You begin to depend on your cushion rather than the Source. God knows this! So in the Kingdom, He gives JUST ENOUGH; that way we can be content in our NEEDS being fulfilled, yet it still forces us to depend on Him as the Source, not His provided cushion. Don’t forget the Israelites! God could’ve provided the finest steak in the desert, but He gave them JUST ENOUGH Manna. It was what they NEEDED to physically survive, but more importantly, it was what they NEEDED to experience His Life and His Kingdom. Remember in just a few verses before Matthew 6:31-34, Jesus asked a question about Life. In Matthew 6:25 he says, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?” This question reveals the heart of the Father. It shows us that He has bigger concerns than just meeting our physical needs; He wants us to experience His Life and His Kingdom, and He knows that giving us JUST ENOUGH is how we experience it!
