Matthew Bible Study: Matthew 6:25-34

This Tuesday, November 13, we will be having our Matthew bible study. We will be discussing Matthew 6:25-34, though I doubt we will make it through the entire passage. Remember also our new format. Come ready to share what you are learning about God and/or what He has been teaching you. Here are some thoughts/comments/observations to help you prepare for Tuesday night.

  1. Verse 25 starts with "for this reason." What is the connection being made between vv 25-34 and vv 19-24?
  2. "Worry" is the central theme of this passage. This is evidenced by the fact it is found no less than 6x in this passage (if you are using the NASB you will only count "worry" 5x; this is due to their translating "worry" as "concern" in v. 34). Is Christ prohibiting all "worry"? It would be valuable to look up "worry" in a good bible dictionary and in the concordance.
  3. In Matthew 6:29 Solomon is mentioned. Take time now to review the "glory"of Solomon.
  4. Another major theme of this passage is the knowledge and sovereignty of God.
