put God’s Kingdom first & have all else

Matthew 6:25-34

25“This is why I tell you: Don’t worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; or about your body, what you will wear.  Isn’t life more than food and the body more than clothing?

26Look at the birds of the sky: They don’t sow or reap or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Aren’t you worth more than they?

27Can any of you add a single cubit to his height by worrying?

28And why do you worry about clothes?  Learn how the wildflowers of the field grow: they don’t labor or spin thread.

29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was adorned like one of these!

30If that’s how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and thrown into the furnace tomorrow, won’t He do much more for you — you of little faith?

31So don’t worry, saying, ‘What will we eat? ’ or ‘What will we drink? ’ or ‘What will we wear? ’

32For the idolaters eagerly seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.

33But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you.

34Therefore don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own.
