Jesus' warning against storing up wealth for ourselves on earth, and his encouragement not to be anxious may seem impractical in today's world and an unrealistic burden to live under. In fact, it may be far more practical and liberating than we could imagine. All the worry in the world cannot deliver us from the troubles of tomorrow. Only seeking first His kingdom and righteousness brings the assurance of our Father's faithful provision no matter what trials we face.
