The Laws of Christ for Common Life. Chapter 10. Anxiety About the Future

Wherever God is present to rule He is also present to help. If we never speak to God about our business, our business will soon cease to be a Divine vocation and a Divine service. Whatever lies beyond the reach of prayer, lies beyond the boundaries of religious duty. We have to make our choice between these’ conflicting tendencies. To give religious faith its true place in common life, we must accept all Christ’s teaching, and not a part of it merely; and we must learn all that He meant concerning God’s relations to the transient sorrows and joys of this world when He said, ” Be not anxious, saying, What shall we eat? or What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? … For your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.”
