Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Matthew 6:25-26 KJV
You can not watch television without being flooded with commercials about food & drink. After they have made you hungry, they tell you about the latest clothing sale happening today that can't be missed. This scripture tells me, it can be missed and that it will be alright. I don't have to live off the desires I am presented with through social media and entertainment. I can be satisfied by God.
What is amazing is Jesus talks about the birds and how they don't sow or reap but they are fed. They are not fed by their works, they are fed because God takes care of His creation. We don't have to worry about anything. Jesus challenges us to not even think about it. We can trust that God is handling our lives. We can lose our life in Him. What a great love God has for us. Let us turn from stressing about what we lack and embrace what we have. We have God. More importantly God has us. He will not fail us. God bless
Until next time....
