In this part of the Sermon, Jesus teaches us that wealth and possessions are far more than material or worldly concerns. Wealth and the pursuit of it can become a God-replacement; an alternative form of worship. It can become a master that demands our efforts and attention. God, in his grace, knows that we need material things but we are to “seek first” his kingdom and righteousness. When we do, he promises that all the things we might normally worry over and strive to gain ourselves will be provided for us.
