How much good has worrying done for you?

New Testament: Matt 6.28–30

To read the Bible in a year, read Matthew 6 on January 7, In the year of our Lord Christ 2021

The Scriptures present to us great theological truths, but at other times it teaches us about everyday things, such as when Jesus taught: 

“So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, 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. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?”

– Matthew 6.28–30 

Worry about daily necessities does occupy much of our thinking. And Jesus knows that. Therefore, he addressed that problem and showed that we do not need to worry. 

He reasoned that lilies have more glory than Solomon’s wealth. However, he considers us as greater than lilies. If he clothes them gloriously without the lilies needing to toil and spin, he will certainly take care of us.

  • If you have clothing, how did you get it?
