Jesus says repeatedly to have an absolute trust in God to provide for our needs.
I was thinking to myself that I would like to find a girlfriend and get married someday. I’m very socially awkward so I thought it would be a good idea to buy some dating books and study up on the matter, which would be depending on myself and my own knowledge.
On the other hand, I should trust in God completely and pray that He will introduce me to someone who is right for me, which would be depending on God.
My question being, is it even worth spending money and putting effort into study? Should I not even worry about it and let God take care of it? Or should I take the two-pronged approach and do both? Would God be offended if I were impatient and decided to take matters into my own hands?
