By Hieromonk Makarios of Marouda on Mount Athos
Christ speaks very clearly: seek the Kingdom of God and the heavenly Father will give you whatever you need in this life. He speaks to His small flock who believe in God and feel Him to be their Father, because not all of us believe and the Father cares for all of us without Him minding those who do not have Him in their lives. His Providence embraces all people, all creation. The Evangelist tells us elsewhere that not one hair falls from our heads without Him knowing.
