The Priority of Life

Sunday, 6th April 2014

Rev Daniel Poon

Everyday we are making decisions of how to live and deciding our priorities each moment. This week, Rev Daniel showed us the comparison between the worldly priority and the Godly priority.

The world tells us to prioritize our life like this:

  3. FAITH

However it is actually not what it says in the Bible. As we are born again Christian, Jesus has already provided us the way to live a new life, not a worldly life. All we need to do is listen to Him and follow His instruction. Jesus’ teaching is already listed clearly in Matthew 6:25-33 to assist us choose the Godly priority.

  • “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Matthew 6:33)
  • “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 important than food, and the body more important than clothes?” (Matthew 6:25)
  • “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” (Matthew 6:26)
  • “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? (Or single cubit to his height)” (Matthew 6:27)
  • “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.” (Matthew 6:28)
  • “Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.” (Matthew 6:29)
  • “If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?” (Matthew 6:30)
  • “So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?‘” (Matthew 6:31)
  • “For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.” (Matthew 6:32)

Jesus doesn’t want us to worry, He knows what we need and He will provide them. But are we will to take the step of faith and live against the worldly values? Are we willing to choose the priority of the born again Christian?
