Why We Should Trust God

"Do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat, or what you

shall wear. Does not life mean more than food, and the body more than

clothing? Consider how the birds of the air neither sow nor reap nor

gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not

worth far more than they? Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not

one of them falls to the ground without your Father's knowledge. As for

you, the very hairs of your head are numbered. Then have no fear, for

you are worth far more than the sparrows.

"Which of you by being anxious can add a single foot to his height? And

why be anxious about what you wear? Consider the lilies of the field,

how they grow! They neither toil nor spin, and yet I tell you, not even

Solomon in all his splendor was clothed like one of these. Now if God so

clothes the grass of the field which is alive to-day but to-morrow is

thrown into the oven, is it not far more certain that he will clothe

you, O men of little faith?

"Do not be anxious then and say, 'What shall we eat or what shall we

drink or with what shall we be clothed?' For all these things the

heathen are seeking, but your heavenly Father knows that you need all

these things. Seek first to do right as he would have you do, and all

these other things will be given to you. Therefore, do not be anxious

about to-morrow, for to-morrow will take care of itself."
