Spiritual Addition

Posted by Matt Postiff November 23, 2014 on Matt Postiff's Blog under Bible Texts 

In Matthew 6, our Lord teaches us:

Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? (Matthew 6:27 NKJV)
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. (Matthew 6:33 NKJV)

I emphasized the verb add in both quotes because it is the focus of the point I want to highlight. The Greek verb in both cases is the same. Our Lord is teaching us that worry can add nothing to our lives. In fact, it only serves to subtract—from our joy, peace, and even our life span! If you want to add something to your life, seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Then a whole lot will be added to your life. And not just food and drink—but peace and joy and every blessing God gives the believer.
