Jesus Christ said that by focusing on earthly things, ruin and darkness would soon follow. All things of this earth will eventually erode, decay, and waste away. Therefore, if we focus on these things, we will likewise erode, decay and waste away; THIS LEADS TO A DESTINY OF DARKNESS !
We should rather SEEK FIRST the things of GOD; The pursuit of The Kingdom of God and God’s Righteousness YIELDS ETERNAL SECURITY as WELL AS Earthly Provisions.
REMEMBER: GOD DELIGHTS AND DESIRES TO BLESS HIS PEOPLE, KEEP HIS PEOPLE and PROVIDE FOR HIS PEOPLE.
Matthew 6:19-24, 33-34
19Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
22The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. 23But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
24No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34Take 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.
I Corinthians 2:9-10
9But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 10But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
