Jesus said to his disciples: “No one can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
“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 clothing? Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you more important than they? Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span? Why are you anxious about clothes? Learn from the way the wild flowers grow. They do not work or spin. But I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was clothed like one of them. If God so clothes the grass of the field, which grows today and is thrown into the oven tomorrow, will he not much more provide for you, O you of little faith? So do not worry and say, ‘What are we to eat?’ or ‘What are we to drink?’ or ‘What are we to wear?’ All these things the pagans seek. Your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides. Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for a day is its own evil.”
All that Jesus is telling us comes down to Trust. Trust in God that He will provide for you. We worry so much about everything and we have so much. Many worry about their next meal because they have nothing. If we who have plenty would trust in the Lord, we would give to those who have nothing. What do you worry about? Do you give to help others or are you afraid you will not have enough? Trust in God and see how He repays you.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for all that you do for me. My trust is in you and not this world. May I never shy away from helping those in need. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.
