In his Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7), Jesus taught that the primary way to get the things we need in life is, ironically, not to pursue them.
Matthew 6:31-34 (Passion Translation)
So then, forsake your worries! Why would you say, “What will we eat?” or “What will we drink?” or “What will we wear?” 32For that is what the unbelievers chase after. Doesn’t your heavenly Father already know the things your bodies require? 33So above all, constantly chase after the realm of God’s kingdom and the righteousness that proceeds from him. Then all these less important things will be given to you abundantly. 34Refuse to worry about tomorrow, but deal with each challenge that comes your way, one day at a time. To- morrow will take care of itself.
