Do you worry about what you will wear or what you will eat? Do you worry about passing tests at school? I remember an old song title "Don't Worry, Be Happy." Jesus said a similar thing in Matthew 6:25-29 NKJV. Therefor I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the filed, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
The flowers in the picture, which look like a red poppies, are what Jesus referred to as the lilies of the field. They decorate the fields, gardens and courtyards everywhere in Israel.
Think About It
Jesus said, "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--you of little faith?" Be encouraged. Know that our Father in Heaven cares for us. He cares about everything that concerns us.
Pray About It
Thank you, Father God, for sending Jesus to teach us about your love for us. Help us to love you and others in return for your great love for us. Amen.
