St. Augustine on Mt 6:33

Can a read be fresh that is about 1600 years old? 

 Matthew 6:33
    But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

   

     “This whole precept, then, reduces itself to this rule of life, that even while providing for such things we should keep our minds on the kingdom of God, but in the service of God’s kingdom we should not think of them.”                   St. Augustine, The Sermon on the Mount, p. 145
