Contemporary English Version (CEV)
27 Look how the wild flowers grow! They don’t work hard to make their clothes. But I tell you that Solomon with all his wealth wasn’t as well clothed as one of these flowers. 28 God gives such beauty to everything that grows in the fields, even though it is here today and thrown into a fire tomorrow. Won’t he do even more for you? You have such little faith!
29 Don’t keep worrying about having something to eat or drink. 30 Only people who don’t know God are always worrying about such things. Your Father knows what you need. 31 But put God’s work first, and these things will be yours as well.
God is our source and a strength. Everything that we need begins and ends with God. Cast your cares onto God. Free your hands from worries and use them instead to praise and magnify God.
Seek first and put the Kingdom of God at the top of your list. Everything else you desire, as long as it lines up with the will of God, will be given to you as well.
It’s already alright.
Go in peace, while serving the Lord.
I love you with an amazing and everlasting love.
Rev. Marcia Davis
