Therefore I tell you,
do not be anxious about your life…
Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
Look at the birds of the air:
they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns,
and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not of more value than they?
Can any of you by worrying
add a single hour to his life?
Consider the lilies of the field,
how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you,
even Solomon in all his glory
was not arrayed like one of these.
If that is how God clothes the grass of the field,
which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire,
will he not much more clothe you,
O you of little faith?
Therefore do not be anxious, saying,
“What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “What shall we wear?”
For the pagans run after all these things,
and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,
and all these things will be given to you as well.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow,
for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Matthew 6:25-34 (ESV & NIV)
QUESTION for YOU: Are you worried, fearful, or anxious about anything today? How do the truths of this passage offer you peace instead?
