Seek First the Kingdom of God

Our Lord tells us in the Gospels not to be concerned over questions like what are we to eat or what are we to wear. He warns against worldly anxieties, and commands us instead to seek first the Kingdom of God.

Worldly anxiety over our ability to provide for ourselves leads to many evils, including the temptation to abort one’s children.

The Lord’s command is to seek His Kingdom first, a mentality which is key to saying yes to life.

To put God’s kingdom first means that choosing what is right is more important and central to us than calculating how much material security we will gain or lose. It means the readiness to sacrifice to make room for God and for others, including those who are unplanned or inconvenient. It means always saying yes to life.
