لا تَهْتَمُّوا إِذًا بِالغَد، فَالغَدُ يَهْتَمُّ بِنَفْسِهِ. يَكْفِي كُلَّ يَوْمٍ شَرُّهُ”
إنجيل القدّيس متّى06/من25حتى34/”قالَ الربُّ يَسوع: «لا تَهْتَمُّوا لِنَفْسِكُم بِمَا تَأْكُلُون، ولا لِجَسَدِكُم بِمَا تَلْبَسُون. أَلَيْسَتِ النَّفْسُ أَهَمَّ مِنَ الطَّعَام، والجَسَدُ أَهَمَّ مِنَ اللِّبَاس؟ أُنْظُرُوا إِلى طُيُورِ السَّمَاء، فهيَ لا تَزْرَع، ولا تَحْصُد، ولا تَخْزُنُ في الأَهْرَاء، وأَبُوكُم السَّمَاويُّ يَقُوتُهَا. ألَسْتُم أَنْتُم بِالحَرِيِّ أَفْضَلَ مِنْهَا؟ ومَنْ مِنْكُم، إِذَا ٱهْتَمَّ، يَسْتَطيعُ أَنْ يُطِيلَ عُمْرَهُ مِقْدَارَ ذِرَاعٍ وَاحِدَة؟ ومَا بَالُكُم تَهْتَمُّونَ بِاللِّبَاس؟ تَأَمَّلُوا زَنَابِقَ الحَقْلِ كَيْفَ تَنْمُو، وهيَ لا تَتْعَبُ ولا تَغْزِل. أَقُولُ لَكُم: إِنَّ سُلَيْمَانَ نَفْسَهُ في كُلِّ مَجْدِهِ لَمْ يَلبَسْ كَوَاحِدَةٍ مِنْهَا. فَإِنْ كَانَ عُشْبُ الحَقْلِ الَّذي يُوجَدُ اليَوْم، وغَدًا يُطْرَحُ في التَّنُّور، يُلْبِسُهُ اللهُ هكَذَا، فَكَمْ بِالأَحْرَى يُلْبِسُكُم أَنْتُم يَا قَلِيلِي الإِيْمَان؟ لا تَهْتَمُّوا إِذًا وتَقُولُوا: مَاذَا نَأْكُل، أَوْ مَاذَا نَشْرَب، أَو مَاذَا نَلْبَس؟ فَهذَا كُلُّهُ يَسْعَى إِلَيْهِ الوَثَنِيُّون، وَأَبُوكُم السَّمَاوِيُّ يَعْلَمُ أَنَّكُم تَحْتَاجُونَ إِلى هذَا كُلِّهِ. أُطْلُبُوا أَوَّلاً مَلَكُوتَ اللهِ وبِرَّهُ، وذلِكَ كُلُّهُ يُزَادُ لَكُم. لا تَهْتَمُّوا إِذًا بِالغَد، فَالغَدُ يَهْتَمُّ بِنَفْسِهِ. يَكْفِي كُلَّ يَوْمٍ شَرُّهُ”.

  

أَصْلَ كُلِّ الشُّرُورِ هُوَ حُبُّ المَال
رسالة القدّيس بولس الأولى إلى طيموتاوس06/من06حتى12/”يا إخوَتِي، إِنَّ التَّقْوَى مَعَ القَنَاعَةِ رِبْحٌ عَظِيم. فإِنَّنا لَمْ نُدْخِلْ إِلى العَالَمِ شَيْئًا، ولا نَسْتَطيعُ أَنْ نُخْرِجَ مِنْهُ شَيئًا. لِذلِكَ يَكْفِينَا القُوتُ والكُسْوَة. أَمَّا الَّذِينَ يُرِيدُونَ الغِنَى فيَقَعُونَ في التَّجْرِبَةِ والفَخِّ وفي كَثِيرٍ مِنَ الشَّهَوَاتِ الغَبِيَّةِ المُضِرَّة، الَّتي تُغْرِقُ النَّاسَ في الدَّمَارِ والهَلاك. فإِنَّ أَصْلَ كُلِّ الشُّرُورِ هُوَ حُبُّ المَال، وقَد طَمَحَ إِلَيهِ أُنَاسٌ فَشَرَدُوا عنِ الإِيْمَان، وطَعَنُوا أَنفُسَهُم بِأَوْجَاعٍ شَتَّى. أَمَّا أَنْتَ، يا رجُلَ الله، فَٱهْرُبْ مِن تِلْكَ الأُمُور، وَٱتْبَعِ البِرَّ والتَّقْوَى والإِيْمَانَ والمحَبَّةَ والثَّباتَ والوَدَاعَة. جَاهِدِ الجِهَادَ الحَسَنَ في سَبِيلِ الإِيْمَان، وأَحْرِزِ الحَيَاةَ الأَبَدِيَّة، الَّتي دُعِيْتَ إِلَيْهَا، وقدِ ٱعْتَرَفْتَ الٱعْتِرافَ الحَسَنَ في حَضْرةِ شُهُودٍ كَثِيِرين”.

 

So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
Bible Quota/06/25-34/”‘Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life? And why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you you of little faith? Therefore do not worry, saying, “What will we eat?” or “What will we drink?” or “What will we wear?”For it is the Gentiles who strive for all these things; and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. ‘So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil
Those who want to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many senseless and harmful desires
First Letter to Timothy 06/06-12/ Of course, there is great gain in godliness combined with contentment; for we brought nothing into the world, so that we can take nothing out of it; but if we have food and clothing, we will be content with these. But those who want to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, and in their eagerness to be rich some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pains. But as for you, man of God, shun all this; pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith; take hold of the eternal life, to which you were called and for which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
