Jesus said to a rich man: “Go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in Heaven. Then come, follow Me.” Mark 10:21 NLT

In other words, Jesus was basically telling this young man, ‘become poor and then come and follow Me, be completely dependent on Me and you will experience how I will take care of all your needs!’

That is why Jesus taught: “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.” Matthew 6:33 NLT

And the apostle Paul wrote this: “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand.” Philippians 4:6-7 NLT

“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from His glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19

Jesus did not want any of His disciples to be self-sufficient, but for them to trust Him for their daily provision, as Jesus taught them to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread.” Matthew 6:11 NKJV
