Consider the important things

Christ Jesus' Sermon on the Mount in the Bible could be considered the most comprehensive guide to living an unselfed life—particularly Jesus' directive, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matt. 6:33). Prior to making that statement, Jesus had been encouraging the gathered crowd not to worry about things like the clothes they were wearing or the food they chose to eat.

This week's Sentinel contains fresh insights about seeking "the kingdom of God and his righteousness." As James Spencer discusses in his article on page 8, a commitment to this search "indicates a heart moved by selfless and unconditional giving." And Natalie Aide echoes this prayer when, as she puts it, "My focus shifted from personal inward struggles to an outward focus on others" (p. 10). That same desire to shift prayer outward is the reason for this week's launch of the Sentinel's new feature: "In the News—a spiritual perspective" (see "Prayer for love and progress in China," p. 14).
