Matthew 6:34 - "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
According to psychologists, human beings ard driven by their base needs. In the sixth chapter of Matthew, Jesus challenges that thought pattern. He instructs us to live from the perspective of what exists that we cannot see, instead of being totally caught up in the details and needs of our daily lives.
Faith lives in the potential, not in the present. Jesus simply asks us to have faith -- to believe in God's goodness and care. In teaching His followers that food, drink, clothes, and shelter are not the most important things in life, Jesus directly contradicts the psychological theories of our world. He dares you to believe God and think the opposite -- God doesn't start with your wants, but with who you are. God wants you to know first who you are.
