Take no Thought


What an incredible statement from Jesus in Matthew 6, when he says we are not to take thought of worry for our lives–– what we shall eat or drink–– in essence, “How are we going to survive.”  He explains this mystery by telling what we are supposed to do in a time we are tempted to worry:  “Consider the birds of the air…” That became a reality when I set a jug of wildflowers near the home of some wrens at the door of an old barn.  They came out an “considered the flowers of the field.”
