face value

today's scripture from "Daily Bible Verse."

John 6:27

Do not labor for food that perishes but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on him God the Father has set his seal.

After, reading this verse, I had an interesting thought.

we all are living in precarious times. We are on the verge of an economic meltdown. Many people speculate that only a few major events are all it would take to send our country and our entire world system into collapse. Imagine food shortages as prices rise..Inflation. Right now, it sounds like mere words but the truth is that I am forced to wonder if these things are and will be a part of our future.
Yesterday, I read an article that says milk prices are going to double next year. What next?

The truth is that we should'nt live in fear. The other day I watched a youtube video by a man that I trust, and he said that hoarding is not the answer.
But, he did say that it wouldn't hurt to do some preparing if we are ever in a place where we need to help take care of others.

Anyhow, in light of all of this speculation..I am glad the God is the One truth on which I can rely.

Note the verse..John 6:27

Do not labor for food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life.. Here He tells us not to fret and whittle away ourl lives in order to get our fill of bread..
He tells us that when we work for His Kingdom, as harvesters of souls, He feeds us..

I think of the George Muller story.
George Muller was never once worried about food. But yet, God supernaturally provided enough food to feed over ten thousand orphans..
and all without asking for a single penny.
How interesting to think that George never joined the workforce as we know it.
Instead, He joined hands with Father, carried out His work by providing for neglected children, and God saw to it that they were fed..every single day..

How interesting..

What would happen if we all began to take the Bible at Face Value? Espesially, the hard the parts where Jesus tells us to share and love one another..
And the parts when He tells us to feed and clothe..and even the parts where He tells us to rebuke, and exort..and to not dine with a brother given over to sin..

Maybe the world would look more like Heaven..

Titus 3:10-11 As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him, knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.

Galatians 6:1 Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted.
