God’s Promise to Provide

“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things." -Matthew 6:31-32

Humankind is the peak of the Father’s creative masterwork, endowed uniquely with His image and possessed with rare potential, both temporal and eternal. No wonder He cares as He does! And therefore, Jesus affirms to us: The Father won’t overlook your need, so don’t worry!

But in this context our Lord does tell us with what we are to concern ourselves. He says, do seek the interests of God’s Kingdom! Do love. Do serve. Do help the fallen. Do reach out with salvation’s power and grace.

Our appointed schedule of priorities is established: ”You take first interest in the things that concern My desire to reach, touch and love others, and I’ll take care of everything that concerns you.”
