Matthew 6:25-34 Do Not Worry.

Jesus said that the Father knows what we need before we even ask, and then went on to teach that the real focus of prayer ought to be on the Father’s will as it is expressed in the ten commandments (6:5-14). Life is indeed more than food and clothing (v. 25). Even the birds are fed and clothed by the Father, how much more then his children (v. 26). Worrying won’t change a thing- except take away our peace (v. 27). Even the flowers of the field are beautifully clothed, though they do not toil or spin their garments (v. 28). So also was Solomon was arrayed more than these (v. 29). If this is true of flowers which pass so quickly, how much more will he clothe his children who live to glorify him, and enjoy him forever (v. 30)? The Father knows we need food and clothing. Our highest concern should rather be the pursuit of his kingdom, and his righteousness, because all these other things will be given to us. “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient is the day is its own trouble” (v. 34).
