8th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Jesus tells us in our Gospel this week not to be anxious about food, clothing, or tomorrow. There are so many things in life that we worry about...is it really that easy to just stop worrying? We worry when we feel alone, but Jesus challenges us this Sunday to "seek first the kingdom of God." We are made, as humans, for deep, rich relationships. When we seek a deep and rich relationship with God first (and then seek to honor the other relationships in our lives next), then all these things that used to cause us worry just won't worry us anymore.
This Lent, don't just give up chocolate or sweets, add something to your life in these amazing 40 days to bring you closer in your relationship with Jesus.
