When we think of the commandments, the ten given on Mount Sinai come readily to mind. However, when Jesus gave the Sermon on the Mount he left us some commandments as well. For example, “Thou shalt not worry.” Jesus who was son of a working man no doubt knew what is was like to wonder where his next meal was coming from. He likewise doubtless observed that concerns like that can cause someone to get so focused on themselves and what they are going through the miss the presence and action of God in themselves and in others. Hence the cure for worry tht Jesus proposes: Seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides.
