VerseD: Matthew 6:25

‚ÄúTherefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?”

Matthew 6:25, ESV

Our desires should not be for the things of this world but the goodness and glory of God. When others see us at peace in a crazy world and content with what we have, they will desire that contentment and peace. They will want the God we carry.

Give God the glory and thank Him for everything.
