Commentators Dale C. Allison and W. D. Davies: Anxiety is foolish and accomplishes nothing except to put God out of the picture.
James Bryan Smith: Worry keeps me focused on my own limited resources. Trust keeps my attention on God's abundant resources. This is why worry cannot exist in the kingdom of God. Worry happens when I am on the throne of my life, when I live in the kingdom of me. But we trust when God is on the throne of our lives and we live in his kingdom. That is why the solution to worrying is to seek first the kingdom.
