But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. –Matthew 6:33, NRSV
That love alone can sustain our spiritual lives is the truth I think Jesus was getting at – and the truth that Frances was able to live – when he told his disciples to take nothing with them for their journey. You see, only when we are willing to set aside what we have strived for and achieved can we come to rely solely on God’s generosity and the generosity of others. And it is precisely this unearned generosity that teaches us grace, which then frees us to receive God’s unconditional love. –Dustin Davis, Disarmingly Simple
