Unnecessary, but Lovingly Given - part 2

I had meant to share this on the last post - the quotes that I shared were talking about this passage below. I included a little more of the passage because I felt like it was needed to get the whole idea. There is lots more good stuff before this passage and after so you may want to get your Bibles out and read the whole chapter of Matthew 6.

"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." Matthew 6:25-33

Red - because these were words of Christ himself!

"And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19

Adding this last verse just because I love it and want to share it again. Don't think we can ever hear it too much. Have a blessed day! :O)
