Live in the now!

What is running through our minds will determine how we live and it can so easily take over our lifes completely to the point where we are daydreaming more than we are living. That is the danger of things like the lottery. It's not the amount of money you spend on them so much as the amount of time you spend thinking of how winning it will change your life, most people who win large amounts on the lottery end up back at square one, if you couldn't handle money before you win, you won't be able to handle it after you win.

The point the Bible is making in the above verse is, if you spend your time thinking on how you are going to fulfill your needs or satisfy your material desires you will end up just daydreaming your way into oblivion or as the Bible put it death, and more often than not a long slow death.

On the other hand if you are Spiritualy minded and fixing your thoughts and ways on the Spirit and things of God, you will have life and peace, and be a pleasure to be around. Jesus tells us quite clearly not to worry about anything, it is futile, God will take care of you, worry changes nothing, God changes everything.

Matthew 6:25-34 New King James Version

Do Not Worry

25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?

28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
