Life’s Necessities

The Savior taught at the Fifth of Matthew that the meek would inherit the earth. Just how that promise is kept is revealed at Chapter Six, where the Lord said that physical necessities are provided to those who seek first the Kingdom and the righteousness of God. Jesus can make such a promise because all those things are His to give. He knew this when, at Matthew Four, Satan promised Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory in exchange for worship. Not only would this unthinkable act violate Divine ordinance to worship only God, but it was not for Satan to give what was already the Lord’s own. Those who are also the Lord’s own know this also and depend not upon satanic dishonesty, but Divine faithfulness, to provide for every aspect of life’s necessities.
