Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
Jesus gave the command to stop worrying three (3) times in these verses.
1. He questioned His listeners about why they worried and described them as people of little faith.
Here are some truths about worry:
a. It robs you of joy and rubs off on others.
b. Worry wastes energy and doesn’t change the situation.
c. Worry is the direct result of failing to trust in God.
d. Worry is offensive to God, because it says you do not believe the Lord can make good on His promises.
2. Jesus used the birds and flowers as examples of living a worry free life that is dependent on the Father. He promises you are worth much more than a flower or bird; trust the Father to provide for you.
3. When we are tempted to worry, we can go outside and ponder the birds and flowers. Marvel at God’s provision for them, and meditate on His promises to take care of us.
Heavenly Father, help us obey Your command not to worry; let it not master us. Heavenly Father, we seek Your kingdom and righteousness
