* Don't Worry *

So I tell you, don't worry about
everyday life, whether you have enough
.food, drink, and clothes

Doesn't life consist of more than
?food and clothing

Look at the birds. They don't need to
plant or harvest or put food in barns
.because your heavenly Father feeds them
And you are far more valuable to him
than they are. Can all your worries add
.a single moment to your life? Of course not

And why worry about your clothes? Look
at the lilies and how they grow. They don't
work or make their clothing, yet Solomon
in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully
.as they are

And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers
that are here today and gone tomorrow, won't
he more surely care for you? You have
!so little faith

So don't worry about having enough food or
.drink or clothing
Why be like the pagans who are so deeply
concerned about these things? Your heavenly
Father already knows all your needs, and
he will give you all you need from day to
day IF you live for him and make the Kingdom
.of God your primary concern

So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow
will bring its own

.Today's trouble is enough for today

~ Mat 6:25-34 NLT ~
