Stress Management | Physically Spiritual S2 E25

Updated: Oct 21, 2021

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat [or drink], or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? [...]. Your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom [of God] and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides. Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for a day is its own evil.” Matthew 6: 25 - 35 - https://bible.usccb.org/bible/matthew/6
