Seek God's Kingdom and Trust Him with the Rest Key Contrast: Gentiles spend their lives seeking after food, drink, and clothes (v32). Christians spend their lives seeking after God's kingdom (v33). Key Points: 1. The Kingdom is greater than food, drink, and clothing. "Is not life more than food?" (v25) "For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost." (Rm 14:17) Seeking the kingdom is seeking righteousness, peace, and joy in the Spirit. 2. God will take care of feeding and clothing. "Your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things." (v32) "All these things will be added to you." (v33) "Look at the birds...your heavenly Father feeds them." (v26) "God so clothes the grass...will he not much more clothe you" (v30). 3. The means is faith. "Will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?" (v30). The only way a person who is worried about food, drink, and clothing can live unconcerned for these things is by faith in God who provides.
