Sunday of
All Saints of Pennsylvania

In today’s gospel from Matthew 6:22-33, Jesus exhorts us that the, “eye is the lamp of the body”, if your eyes are healthy then your life will be filled with light, but if they are unhealthy then your life will be full of darkness.

In the second part of the Gospel Lesson, Jesus also tells us not to worry about what to eat, drink or what to wear; rather, He tells us that honest daily work under God’s care will be enough for our sustenance.  That we must seek first the Kingdom and His righteousness and all things will be given unto you.

We must remind ourselves to cut down and simplify our lives, we must reorder our priorities.  But even more importantly, we must and need a spiritual perspective on things.  It says, “cast all your anxieties on the Lord, for He cares about you”.  For to cast one’s anxieties on the Lord, means to trust in God as the One who is there and as the loving Father who cares about us.

It can be simplified with these words, “Lord, You take over,” and begin to live both freely and responsibly by faith in God.
