Don't Worry

Do Not Worry
26"If then you cannot do even a very little thing, why do you worry about other matters? 27"Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. 28"But if God so clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He clothe you? You men of little faith!…

Christ largely insisted upon this caution not to give way to disquieting, perplexing cares, Mt 6:25-34. This is our encouragement to cast our care upon God, which is the right way to get ease. Being eager and anxious for the things of this world, even necessary things, will even damage the spirit of a disciple of Christ. Fear cannot prevail when we put needless cares upon ourselves upon needless. We must avoid this. How? When we value the beauty of God's holiness, we will not crave the luxuries of life. Look at it this way. Christ is our Master, and we are his servants, not only working servants, but waiting servants. We must be as men that wait for their lord, that sit up while he stays out late, to be ready to receive him. Another picture would be to be ready, as ready as the good man of the house would be, if he knew at what hour the thief would come.
