Do you ever find that the things you chase after end up chasing you? As in a game of tag, you chase and chase and finally lay your hands on it, but instead of the game being over – you are the one now having to avoid capture and on and on it goes.
31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. (Matthew 6:31-34)
