Bible in Basic English
But let your first care be for his kingdom and his righteousness; and all these other things will be given to you in addition. Matthew 6:33
We so often are misguided by what we seek first. We seek the approval of men by trying to impress them by what we drive, where we live and even by what we agree to. If we look at this scripture in full context there are some valuble principles that will solidify our faith.
Faith principle #1. God over Man
Matthew 6:1 Take care not to do your good works before men, to be seen by them; or you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.
King James Version
Matthew 6:1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
Examine yourself and consider your ways am I doing what I do to please man or God. One version say's take care or be careful, king james say take heed as in warning, "DANGER WILL ROBINSON" either way our motives must start pleasing the father and not men.
