Look to the Birds & See the Lillies

By seeking Jesus we can learn to be free from worry…

Matthew 6:25-34…
“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? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? 28“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If 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? 31So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

It is God’s desire that we be free from worry. The cares of this life are real and we can be easily swayed by them. However, as Christians we are not to really worry, just be concerned. In changing the language in how we are wording this, it can help us have our minds and feelings catch up to where we need to have our mind set.

Jesus teaches us that we can be free from worldly concerns. This is accomplished by seeking Him first.

We can have faith that God will provide, even if we do not see the resolution immediately.

God promises to help us through our difficult times in life. Faith in God will keep us free from being overwhelmed and overly concerned.
