Verses 19-21 - Be Sure to Bank in the Right Place...
Verses 22-23 - Make sure the Vastness of Your Vision is Filled with the Light of the World
Verse 24 - Make sure to choose the Correct Master as the Motivation of your Life
Matthew 6:25–34 NLT
25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? 28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? 31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. 34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
Three Principles from Matthew 6:19-24 are now PRACTICALLY APPLIED

Question # 1 - WHAT IS MY FIRST CONSIDERATION? (What am I Worth)

Food & Drink? - v. 26 Look at the Birds… SUSTENANCE FROM THE UNSEEN

Clothing? - vv. 28-29 Look at the Flowers of the Field… BEAUTY IN THE UN-ATTENDED

Question #2 - AM I WORTH IT? (Matthew 6:26 & 30)

“Are you not of more value than they?” (6:26)
“ He will certainly care for you” (6:30)

Question # 3 - WHY AM I WORRIED? (Matthew 6:30b-34)

Worry and Faith Failure go hand-in-hand. Failure to TRUST THE PROVISION OF GOD and Failure to BELIEVE GOD IS CONCERNED FOR YOU lead to ANXIETY (v. 30 & 34)
Worldly Thinking IS a Faith Failure and turns our FOCUS away from God and Toward ourselves (v. 32)
The BIBLICAL CURE for Faith Failures of Worry and Worldly Thinking is to SEEK FIRST the Kingdom of God
