Spiritual Food: Seek First the Kingdom and His Righteousness

Seek First the Kingdom and His Righteousness

     The following are verses that support our topic in Issues of Life about Worry. Jesus, Himself, commands us not to worry; instead, He tells us to seek God and trust in Him by being in faith. 

Matthew  6:27  "Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?" 

Matthew 6: 31-34  "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. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." 

1 John 4:18  "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment...".

1 John 4:16  "And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him."
