[Jesus said] “Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass, which is alive in the field today, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith! And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be worried. For all the nations of the world seek after these things, and your Father knows that you need them. Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things will be added to you.” (Luke 12: 27-31 ESV)
Hymn ELH 468:3,5 All Depends on Our Possessing
Many spend their lives in fretting
Over trifles and in getting
Things that lack all solid ground.
I shall strive to win a treasure
That will bring me lasting pleasure
And that now is seldom found.
Well He knows what best to grant me;
All the longing hopes that haunt me,
Joy and sorrow, have their day.
I shall doubt His wisdom never,
As God wills, so be it ever;
I commit to Him my way.
Heavenly Father, You provide all I need each day. Help me to be thankful for all that You provide never worrying about my future needs. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
