And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well. (Luke 12:29-31)
When the coronavirus pandemic began, there was a shortage of meat and frozen foods. Instead of being thankful for the food we did have, many complained we couldn’t eat our favorite dishes. Now that most foods are plentiful and most aren’t seeking recreation outside the home, our hearts are set on eating. I was happy when a friend asked for books and personal items for her prison ministry so I could focus on something worthwhile.
When we seek His kingdom, God will fulfill all our needs, even those beyond food and water. So, don’t worry – help Jesus fulfill someone’s needs today.
Father God, I forgot to thank you for the food you provided during the pandemic, so I’m thanking you now. Show me how I can advance Your kingdom and ease the burden for my family and others. Help me not to worry by reminding me to cast my cares on You. In Jesus’ precious name I pray. Amen.
