Avoid Being Weighed Down by the Anxieties of Life

1 Timothy 6:6 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)

But godliness with contentment is great gain,

The people of the world today have the very opposite mindset or viewpoint. For example, when many young ones get married today, they expect that they are going to have it all right away, a nice house, filled with beautiful furniture, with the latest appliances, two very good cars, as well as the latest in electronic devices. However, Christians with a biblical mindset do not allow their desires to go beyond what is reasonable and possible for them. In fact, they make wise choices with their finances, so as to acquire the materials that they need without going into debt. Instead, they focus their time and energy on how they can better serve the Christian congregation.

Matthew 6:33:34 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)

Keep Seeking Kingdom First

33 But be you seeking[1] the Kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own wickedness.

[1]  Gr., zeteite; the verb form indicates continuous action.
