DG BookGospel: Matthew 6:24-34
No one can serve two masters; for he will either hate No one can serve two masters;
for he will either hate one and love the other; or he will be loyal to the first and look down
on the second. You cannot, at the same time, serve God and money.

Therefore, I tell you, not to be worried about food and Therefore, I tell you, not to be worried about food
and drink for yourself, or about clothes for your body. Is not life more important than food; and is not the
body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow, they do not harvest, and
do not store food in barns; and yet, your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not less worthy than they are?

Can any of you add a day to your life by worrying about it? Can any of you add a day to your life by worrying
about it? Why are you so worried about your clothes? Look at how the flowers in the fields grow. They do not
toil or spin. But I tellyou, that not even Solomon, in all his glory, was clothed likeone of these. If God so clothes
the grass in the field, which blooms today and is to be burned in an oven tomorrow, how much more will he
clothe you? What little faith you have!

Do not worry, and say: What are we going to eat? What Do not worry, and say: What are we going to eat?
Whatare we going to drink? or: What shall we wear? The pagans busy themselves with such things; but your
heavenly Father knows that you need them all. Set your heart, first, on the kingdom and righteousness of God;
and all these thingswill also be given to you. Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enoughtrouble of its own.

Reflection:

Worrying does help—for 95% of the things that we worry about do not happen! It is as ifour worrying about them
has such magical effect on them that those events disappear! But the problem is: worry, our magical solution to
making them disappear, leaves us with ulcer in the stomach and ahigh blood pressure! The only effective way to
get rid of our worries is to learn to trust. In fact, psychologist Eric Erikson marked“basic trust” which develops
(or fails to develop) in the initial years of our life on earth as fundamental to our well-being through our entire life
span. We can also add on to this initialtrust capital by modelling our life after that of Christ: He hardly worried about
anything, for hetotally trusted the will of the Father. Did it make his problems disappear? No, each day brought
enough troubles for him as well. But he faced them with faith and trust in the Father’s love and providence.
