And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.
“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:29-32 (NIV)
Worry seems to be so central to our lives. It is easy to stress out over everyday things, like what we will eat, what we will drink, what we will wear, or where we will live. Those things can often take our focus away from what is really important. Meeting those basic needs should not be what consumes our daily thoughts and actions. We are meant for so much more than that. Father God, may our priorities be aligned with yours. May we seek to do your will first… and above all other things. May we trust in You and fear not the things of this world. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
