“And he said unto his disciples,
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for you life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment. Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest? Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed lie one of these. If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith? And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Luke 12 v22-34 AKJV
Do not worry. Understand, their is more to life than just food, clothing, or any other material goods. Work is better than worry, and even better than the rewards of work is the fullness of understanding many of the things of God. His peace for one, passes all the understanding of the world. Knowing life comes from him provides a foundation to live on that cannot be matched.
To understand even in the literal sense that life is a gift from God is a huge strength of our faith, provided for his purposes. We will live in eternity with him in an existence of his holiness.
Lord, I thank you this day for your mercy, your grace, your forgiveness of our sins.
“All the ways of man are clean in his own eyes; but the Lord weigheth the spirits.” Proverbs 16 v2 AKJV
