“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?”
Jesus has not only commanded us but has also offered us a way to live life worry free. No more worries. It doesn’t come from trying harder; it comes from training and it comes from the power of the Holy Spirit.
In Matthew 6, in the heart of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus tells us we shouldn’t live to store up things and we shouldn’t live our whole lives geared towards acquiring wealth, although there’s nothing wrong with wealth.
Then, as he’s outdoors talking, there are birds flying around, and he looks up and says, “Look at the birds of the air. They don’t sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your Heavenly Father takes care of every one of them.” Now people are looking at these birds and how they just seem to enjoy life. They don’t worry about anything and everything they need is provided for them.
And he says, “Look how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin and yet I tell you that not even Solomon, in all of his splendor, was dressed like one of these.” Solomon, the richest, wealthiest man ever, even Solomon didn’t look as good as those flowers do. Will not God take much more care of you than he did these flowers that are here today and tomorrow and then thrown into the fire to be burned? They just become trash.
God wants more for us than the birds and the lilies, but like them, he wants us to live worry-free lives. Of course He does. We’re his kids
Prayer: Dear Lord, I want to live the worry free life you offer me. Help me, when worrisome thoughts enter my mind, to turn my thoughts to You. Amen.
