MATTHEW 6:25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?
28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?
31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
It's so easy in life for us to get used to living in a way where we think we have to be comfortable all the time. The bible never tells us that we are supposed to be comfortable, perhaps in places, possibly quite the opposite. Look at verse 32 and see what dominates the thoughts of unbelievers. Sadly, I know, there have been times in my life where I've let them dominate my thoughts.
Life is full of risk. You may be living a life of worry and not realizing it. We worry what other people think all the time. About our clothes, our opinions, what we think or say...these things begin to really influence us and harms us in our relationship in following Jesus and our effectiveness as Christians.
Read verse 33 & 34 again. Some see it as risk...some see it as trust. But if you can begin to live out these two verses, your life will start looking more and more like Jesus and less like the world around us.
