Do Not Worry
Christ Messages and Parables
Words of Wisdom
Do Not Worry
25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your
life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what
you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?
26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither
sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of
you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? 28
“So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field,
how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and
yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like
one of these. 30 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? 31
“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we
drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all
these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you
need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom
of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow
will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."
