Jesus teaches us to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, assuring us that all our needs will be provided for. When we prioritize our relationship with God above all else, He promises to take care of us and meet our every need.

Instead of worrying about tomorrow, Jesus encourages us to trust in God's daily provision. By focusing on the present moment and entrusting our future into God's hands, we can experience freedom from anxiety and find peace in His care.

3: God’s Providential Care for Creation (Matthew 6:26)

Jesus points to the birds of the air and the flowers of the field as examples of God's providential care. If God provides for the needs of His creation, how much more will He care for His children who are made in His image?
