SPECKA – Knowledge to learn

Posted: May 28, 2011 in SPECKA

i realize that every word of this series of blogs is knowledge to learn but what i am looking for today are the keys that unlock portions of this passage. What are a few things i can take away from this passage that will help me remember all the rest.

SPECKA.  …a Sin to confess ….a Promise to keep …an Example to follow …a Command to obey … Knowledge to learn …an Applicationto apply.

The way it works is that i read a chapter, a group of verses or a single verse of the Bible and look for descriptions for each of the words in the passage. So in the following verses i’ll use bold red to expose the Sin to confess, or words that lead to sin. i’ll use bold blue to expose the Promise to keep words. i’ll use bold green to expose the Example to follow words.Due to some duplication of the use of words i’ll use an underline to expose the Command to obey words. Today i’ll use purple to expose Knowledge to learn although technically its all knowledge to learn.

Matthew 6:19-34  Teaching about Money and Possessions

19 “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.

i am aiming for my desires to be His. The word that comes to mind is that i have the mind of Christ, my thoughts are established in Him, and my steps (desires) are ordered by Him. Using SPECKA will bring other verses to mind to add to the ones your focused on. Imagine a map with a starting point and an ending point. To go from one to the other you will travel through many things that technically have nothing to do with where you want to end up. BUT… you may find many valuable nuggets during the journey in places that you thought were not important.

22 “Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light. 23But when your eye is bad, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is!

This says to me that i must be aware that, my eyes introduce both the things of the world but also the things of the spirit so i must be careful what my eyes are fixed on.

 24“No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

 25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 27Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?

i have said it in the past that i must know who i am because of who He is. If i don’t see myself as valuable to God and others then i will think that i have to take care of myself. If i ask a wrong question i get a wrong answer but verse 27 is not a wrong question. All the worries that i can remember having, have never produced a single moment of peace in my life.

 28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?

This is another question that is not wrong, so why do i have so little faith? Is it because i think i can take better care of myself than God? Maybe i think He’s just to busy with everyone else so i try to help lighten His load? How about, i don’t think i deserve His time? Then there’s the thought that i am ungrateful for what i have and so i press for more? It could be any number of things but that’s for each person to answer for themselves.

 31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of Godabove all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

 34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

That’s an understatement and that’s why i am learning to focus on the day i am in and stay out of tomorrow as much as is humanly possible..
