RelationSHIFT: June 8

This week’s readings are based on the “Be Present” sermon from the RelationSHIFT series. This season, we want to focus on the changes or shifts that God wants to make in us in order to improve our relationships. Slow down, read the text, and then let it read you.

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.  If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Matthew 6:28-34 (NIV)

Sometimes we have a tendency to worry. Or, we find ourselves prioritizing the wrong things. In response, we find ourselves lacking the ability to be present with God or with others. What is distracting you from being present with God and others today? What area of your life do you need to be more present: God, marriage, kids, family, friends, those in need, etc…)? Pray about these things.
