The beauty comes in verse 32 of Matthew 6 where Jesus says “surely your heavenly father knows that you need all of them!” This is so encouraging because I don’t have to feel foolish for paying attention to what needs to be done every day like study, get dressed, pay some bills, analyse some experimental data, my father knows these things need to happen and He doesn’t minimise their importance. He minimizes their value in terms of taking up emotional and mental space in my life.
Someone who doesn’t believe in God cannot stop thinking and fretting about tomorrow because they don’t know if their best efforts will be enough because they do not have a God, who cares for everything on earth, especially his children. If you’ve done what you can, stop there and don’t concern yourself further with it, God will take care of it. – Excerpt from my blog post Kingdom above all else click on the link to read the full story.
