For the Beauty of the Earth

Can worry make you live longer? Why worry about clothes? Look how the wild flowers grow.
But I tell you that King Solomon with all his wealth wasn't as well clothed as one of them.
God gives such beauty to everything that grows in the fields,
even though it is here today and thrown into a fire tomorrow.
He will surely do even more for you!
Why do you have such little faith?

Don't worry and ask yourselves, "Will we have anything to eat?

Will we have anything to drink? Will we have any clothes to wear?"

Only people who don't know God are always worrying about such things. Your God in heaven knows that you need all of thee. But more than anything else,
put God's work first and do what he wants. Then the other things will be yours as well.

Don't worry about tomorrow. It will take care of itself.

You have enough to worry about today.
Matthew 6: 28-33
