More Than That

  

Life is more than what you eat & drink (or don’t eat & drink). More than what you wear. More than what other people think of you. 

If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. 

There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. 

Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds. (Matthew 6:25, 26 MSG)

It is easy to get distracted from what fills your spirit by focusing on filling your stomach or filling your closet.  

I am not talking about dieting or shopping. I am talking about knowing that your value doesn’t come from either one of those. 

Life is about more than food and clothes.

Life is about love, about risk, about adventure. Life is about serving, giving, helping, loving. 

Life is about being filled with God’s amazing grace every day and then pouring out on all those around us.

Life is about worshipping God when we wake, when we walk, when we clean, when we work, when we eat, when we get dressed. 

Life is about knowing that you are saved by grace because of the sacrifice of Jesus. Life is about knowing that you are reconciled to your Father in heaven and loved by him.  

Life is about knowing that when God looks at you, He loves you for who you are and whose you are – His, not because of what you wear or what you eat or don’t eat or even because what you do or don’t do. 

You are a child of God who is cherished, chosen and provided for.

“free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God.And you count far more to him than birds.” (Matthew 6: 26 MSG)

Are you free and unfrettered today?
