Reflection. ¿Belittle God to enlarge the Ego? By Fabian Massa.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google translator.

Matthew 6.25 - 33, Jesus encourages his disciples not to worry about things every day.

Do not worry about food, citing that if the parent is responsible for feeding the birds of the field, how to not do it for their children (6.25-26).
In the same way the clothes to wear, if Father saw wild plants, how will he not also clothe their children (6.28-29).

In verse 32 Jesus says: "32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them." The Children of God should not worry about this, because they behave so those who have no faith in God.
For this reason Jesus recommended (vv.33): "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added".

What we are looking for here Jesus is that the disciples "delaminate" thinking God according to your needs, because that way I'm doing a little one God, would focus around the theme of Worship in my needs and not in Him.
But the common preaching is this (read a grandly):

"Oh brothers, I bring a fresh Word of God for their lives ... for your needs ... for their fears ... .to have faith ... have confidence ...
For you ... in you ... .centrada needs you ... .in the fears of you ... .in the hopes and dreams of you ... you ... .for you ... ..for you. .... "

This devotional what God says to model your life, your needs, your requests, your fears, your ... your ... your ... is a model centered on the smallness of man and the greatness of God. The "Anointed" teach and preach in this way, because man naturally want to hear about your problem and how God will solve it in 5 minutes, because obviously he "feels it is the Center of the Universe" and this is the beginning of Humanism: God is for:

to. Serve me.
b. Meet my statements of Power
c. To see that I do not miss anything.
d. For me to be happy.

And with this simple model of preaching, they have filled their churches with people who think, pray and believe in God from the natural, ie each of them the center of all creation. But we should follow Jesus taught that seek to understand the Kingdom of God.

It is better to speak of a Great God who made heaven and earth, it is better to speak of his good deeds, his prophecies, his promises, the greatness of his power and of his love, the imposing of his works, how he says Jesus, first seek the kingdom of God and his righteousness, knowing, understanding, studying and believing that everything else will be added to us.
Leave those cheap and Devotions and Humanists, stop please.

For preachers the Word says:

45 "Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants to give them their food in due time? 46 Blessed is that servant when his master returns, finds him doing his duty. 47 I assure you that will put in charge of all his possessions. 48 But what if that wicked servant says to himself, 'My master is delaying, "49 and then begins to beat his fellow servants, and eat and drink with drunkards? 50 The day when the servant least expects and least expected time Mr. again. 51 The severely punish and impose the sentence received by hypocrites. And there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 24.45-51 NIV).

For the disciples Word says:

"Seek the Lord while he may be found,
    call on him while he is near.
7 Let the wicked forsake his way,
    and the unrighteous man his thoughts.
Let him turn to the Lord, our God, who is generous to forgive,
    and he will receive mercy.
8 "For my thoughts are not your,
neither are your ways my own
says the Lord -.9 My ways and my thoughts
    They are higher than yours;
    Higher than heaven on earth!
10 As the rain and snow
    descend from heaven,
and do not return there without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish
to give seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
11 So also is the word that goes forth from my mouth:
    It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose.
12 You will go out with joy
    and be led forth in peace.
In its wake, the mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing
    and applaud all the trees of the forest.
13 Instead of brambles cypress will grow;
    myrtles, instead of nettles.
This will give popularity to the Lord; will be a sign that will last forever. "Isaiah 55.6-13 NIV

Week 70 is at the gates. Do not stay out.
