But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33 NIV
Matthew 6:25-34 is a sermon by Jesus on worry. Excessive worry is anxiety and nervousness often caused by stress. Worry can negatively affect our lives. It can paralyze us. It can become an illness. We can get physically sick when worry is not relieved. Worry isn’t always a bad thing. It can help us recognize that if we or someone else does certain things, we can anticipate a bad outcome. It can help us to make better decisions. However, when worry takes over our lives, that is a different story. Jesus has given us a cure for worry. He says put Him first in our lives, and He will take care of everything else.
