…seek first the kingdom [of God] and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides. Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself.
DO NOT BE ANXIOUS
by Fr. Bobby Titco
(Read full post…)
As His disciples, Jesus invites us to see beyond our anxieties to a God who cares for us. Of course, that is easier said than done. No one has said it is an easy thing to do anyway. Human nature is such that when we are beset by any problem, we tend to be myopic and focus only on our anxiety. When this happens, we are simply drained to do anything other than coping with our anxiety and we are left with no heart for God because we have no more to give. Jesus does not tell us to ignore our worries. He advises us instead to place them within the framework of our childlike trust in God who is our Father.
Lord, I place my whole trust in You and leave all my worries behind me. Amen.
