June 19 The Gospel breski1

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 6,24-34.
Jesus said to his disciples: "No one can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
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?
Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you more important than they?
Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span?
Why are you anxious about clothes? Learn from the way the wild flowers grow. They do not work or spin.
But I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was clothed like one of them.
If God so clothes the grass of the field, which grows today and is thrown into the oven tomorrow, will he not much more provide for you, O you of little faith?
So do not worry and say, 'What are we to eat?' or 'What are we to drink?' or 'What are we to wear?'
All these things the pagans seek. 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."

Revelations of divine love, ch 85

"Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself"
And in this sight I marvelled highly. For notwithstanding our simple living and our blindness here, yet endlessly our courteous Lord beholds us in this working, rejoicing; and of all things, we may please him best by wisely and truly believing, and enjoy with him and in him. For just as truly as we shall be in the bliss of God without end, praising and thanking him, so truly we have been in the foresight of God, loved and known in his endless purpose from the beginning of time. In which love without beginning, he made us; and in the same love he keeps us and never suffers us to be hurt in any way by which our bliss might be lost. And therefore when the Doom is given and we are all brought up above, then shall we clearly see in God the secret things which are now hidden from us. Then shall none of us be stirred to say: “Lord, if it had been otherwise, then it would have been well;” but we shall all say with one voice: “Lord, blessed may you be, for it is thus, it is well; and now we truly see that all things are done as you ordained before anything was made."
