Scripture | Matthew 6:25-34
“Do not worry about your life”

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you
will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not
sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet [God] feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than
they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet
I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes
the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will [God] not much more clothe
you — you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall
we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and [God] knows that you need them. 33 But seek
first the reign of God and God’s righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do
not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
