EVERYTHING ELSE WILL BE ADDED

ALISON PRAISEWATER

There’s a famous sermon that Jesus gives called the Sermon on the Mount. You can read it in the Book of Matthew. At the end He talks about worry. He says, look, I provide food for the birds. I clothe the fields with wildflowers. Don’t you think that I’ll provide for you, my most beloved creation? He tells us not to worry about anything. He promises that as long as we seek God and his kingdom, then he will take care of everything else.

That’s been the common theme in my life, to run fast forward after Christ. Not worrying about the details, but surrendering everything over to God. And I have not once regretted it. Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and everything else will be added to you.

QUESTION 1. Think of a time that you have taken a giant leap of faith, and just trusted God to provide for your needs. What was your experience like? How did God provide for you?
CHALLENGE: Jesus tells us to hand our worries over to him. He wants to take them from us. He wants us to trust him for our needs. As Jesus proclaims, seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and everything else will be added to you.
