  1. They both was unclean animals to the Jews. The people belived in the Good News and was baptized daily. Jews and Gentiles
  2. When we notice something is wrog with other's and we think that we are so perfect within, now that's funny. Because in His Spiritual eyes they are both the samae in size. It respresent sin. It respresent sin too. Never if you have removed your own speck first.
  3. For in that same way we may judge a person, it will come back to us the same indentical way.We are to show love to everyone, if we are to expect love and respect for others. See decernment from God and realize that we all are created in His image.
  4. Yes, and I convicted by the Holy Spirit to repent and confess that. Anger within one's heart has a lot to do with that. We do not have the right to try and judge any person at any time. Jesus told us to love one another as He has love us.
  5. yes, that's why He said it this way to them. "do not worry". God is in control. God is Omniscient , having infinte knowledeg; knowing all things (Hebrews 4:13).
  6. "Seek first God's kingdom and His righteousness." We put God "first" in everything we do. God will provide everything you neeed according to His will if you you put Him first.
  7. Jesus mention this because the Pagans worry about everything, food clothes, shelter, money,etc. The point Jesus is making is God is Omnipresent, all powerful; having unlimited power. He will supply all of our needs. As a Christian we are believers in God and what He will do for His children, as a Gentile they are non-believers, they do not believe until they see it right away. This has a positive effect in my life knowing that "my heavenly Father knows what I need" in my life to give Him the glory.
  8. It occur in this passage 3 times, in verse 25,31, and 34. Excessive worry border on sin because it shows a lack of faith in God to provide for you, instead of letting go and letting God work things out in His timing for you. Yes worry and trust are exact oppsites because trust is faith and love and worry is sin and death.
  9. The point that Jesus make with his twin Parables of the Birds and of the Flowers of the Field, is they do not worry about where to sow, reap or store away food for tomorrow because they know that God will feed them daily. Because they trust in Him. We the people need to really put our trust in Jehovah Jireh because "The Lord Will Provide." This is a valid point.
  10. Jesus is not saying that you can't seek wealth and God. In fact God does want His children to prosper, but do not put your wealth first, always put God first in everything that you do, This would be my first choice is to put God first and thank Him for His grace, mercy, and favor to be blessed with wealth. I believe this is Literal, where your treasue is, there your heart will be also. And yes wealthy people does serve God. not all of them but a true born again christian that is wealthy person will serve God.
  11. According to v 20, we are to store up for ourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, where thives do not break in and steal. in other words doing the will of God here on earth. The is no garuantee on what earthly possessins we have here on earth. I don't know why some people are uncomfortable with the concepts of rewards in heaven. I am very comfortable wityh the reewards that Jesus has promised for me in heaven.
  12. Jesus is speaking Specifically. This is an old teaching, v21, "for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." What Jesus condemns here is greed and hoarding of money.
  13. Question: Waht did Jesus condemn him for? Answer: Jesus condenm him for storing up his wealth on earth not in heaven. Question: What is the key verse in this passage?: Answer: Watch out. Be on your guard against all kinds of greed. a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions (v 15). Question: What is the context of this parble?: Answer: The Parable of the Rich Fool. Question: How does this relate to the Sermon on the Mount?: Answer: This relates to when Jesus was speaking in Matthew 6:20, store your treasures in heaven, and in Luke 12:21, in this context it probaly more specifically refers to using one's material wealth for good causes.
  14. 1. Because if we don't ask God to forgive us, we will never make it into His kingdom; Confession and forgiveness of our debts. 2. Wickness and evil and self-rightiousness can block God's blessings to flow to you. 3. You must repent always and ask God to forgive you daily if you want God to bless you. He said that when we ask for forgiveness He will forgive you and forget it too.
  15. 1. We are so full of pride. 2. in ourselves that we don't want to think of asking God to give us nothing until something bad comes into our lives or a strong spiritual warfare comes along, then we'll come to Him like baby's and telling God what He has promised to do for us. 3. We need ask God to "give" us bread, daily because it is His Word that gives us wisdom, power, strength, and knowledge as long as we ask Him in Jesus name.
