Essential has taken on a new meaning.
“Therefore do not worry, saying,’ What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ for after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:31-33 emphasis mine) NKJV.
The catchword springing up due to the COVID-19 outbreak is essential. “Stay home and only go out for essential business, i.e., food, drugs, emergency medical needs,” is broadcast throughout the country. This warning, not taken very seriously at first by many, is now starting to make sense. It is so sad; many did not heed the advice. And others are panicking worried if they will have enough money, food, or essential items to exist. It is time for Christians to let their light shine and direct those in the panic mode to the real essentials.
If we are genuinely exemplifying the teaching of Jesus on being a light to those in darkness, then we must bring hope through faith in Christ and trust in our Father that essentials have a new meaning.
Those not yet a professed Christian (referred to as Gentiles in the text) worry about essential fleshly items. But if they sought the kingdom of God first, there would be no need to worry. Every day God provides for His creation, i.e., birds, flowers. Jesus said, “Are you not of more value than they?” (Matthew 6:26) NKJV.
We must show them the trust we have in God through our actions and words. Let them see that light of faith and trust. Let them hear us speak of what true essential is all about.
‘Father, give us that understanding that You love us and care for us. Let us seek your kingdom of love first. And let us spread that hope to those groping in the darkness that there is light at the end of the tunnel if they seek you first. Amen’
