Matthew 6:25 “If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body.
6:30 “If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers – most of which are never even seen – don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you?
Years ago I read the book, Lilies of the Field, before I even knew there was a movie based on it. That book was my first exposure to this scripture, and even as a kid, I was immediately changed. All of a sudden, the fact that God cared about my circumstances became clear. He knew I didn’t have brand-name clothes. He knew it bothered me only because I got teased sometimes. And He cared!
And His call to me? Don’t worry! He takes care of all his creations, down to each individual flower that grows. He took the time to make such a wide variety of them, to add beauty to them, and to provide them with exactly what they need to grow. A little sunshine, a little rain, even a breeze to carry their little seeds away to grow in a new piece of dirt.
He spoke everything else into existence. You, He took his time and formed, carefully, lovingly, and deliberately. How much more will He take care of what concerns you, His greatest treasure?
