Seek first the kingdom


“Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” (Matt. 6:31-34 ESV)

Seek first the kingdom. The reality of the world says we must work and strive to meet our needs. The reality of the kingdom says, “God will handle it.”

If you are joining us in our weekly Lenten fast, we enter our 4th day of fasting with the cross already visible on the horizon. God has proven time and time again that he can and will meet our needs, including our greatest need: his kingdom reality.

Let go. Let God.
