Over the course of the next couple weeks I will be sharing thoughts in connection with instances throughout the book of Matthew where faith is mentioned.
Have you ever worried about having the money to get through the week, or even how you’re going to get dinner on the table that same night? I can honestly say, “been there and worried about that”. However, the Lord has always been there for me and my family, as he is always there and will continue to be there for all of us. He is a good Father, which means he’s a good provider. Jesus brings us a lesson on faith, or perhaps our lack there of, in the 6th chapter of Matthew.
25 “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? 26 Look 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? 27 Can 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. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If 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? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
May we always put our trust in the Lord with full serenity. He is in control, always has been and always will be. Our Heavenly Father, He’s a good Father, a trustworthy Provider and loves his children.
