“For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?” Matthew 25:35-37.
“(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof,” Matthew 6:32-34.
“In the morning when you arise, what do you begin your day with?
For when you seek first My Kingdom and My Righteousness, then everything else will fall into place.
But rather if you seek those things that you desire to do first, then everything will not fall into place.
For I AM the source of everything around you.
I AM He who causes you to triumph.
I AM the One who causes the sun to arise in the morning, and I AM He who brings the moon out at night.
The choice is your about any given day — you can live for those things that perish or you can seek those things that are everlasting.
For the world seeks those things that are all around you. In the long run they will decay and will dwindle like the grass around you.
So it is with those who hoard-up riches, for everyone who love mammon pierces his heart. For you cannot serve two masters.
But if you have food and clothing and a home for shelter, then is that not enough? But as I have said, consider the lilies of the field, for they neither toil nor spin, and what else around you is more beautiful than these?
For do I not care for the birds and the beasts of the field?
And yet your heavenly Father feeds them! Oh ye of little faith.
And yet there are many who walk the streets without little of the world’s goods. And you see them everyday around you.
Some are truly in need and yet others masquerade as the poor. But give to those who ask of you, for you do not know what tomorrow will bring.
On that day I will ask of you — “Did you give to those who asked of you and did you give to those who spitefully used you?”
For I was hungry and you fed Me not, I was thirsty and you gave Me nothing to drink.”
