Matthew 6:28-29 – “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.”
This lesson is a reminder to those who confess Christ that our daily provisions should not be a source of worry or concern. Our God and Father knows what we have need of. Jesus told His disciples that foxes have holes and birds have nest, but the Son of Man has no place to call His own. Jesus trusted God for his daily provision. Jesus teaches His disciples to have eyes, hearts and pursuits of heavenly treasures. When we see the Father’s care for nature’s flowers and birds, it should inspire trust in our faithful God who cares for us. When we hear the songs of the birds, it should inspire hymns of praise in our hearts. With the coming of spring, it should renew our hope in the watchful eyes of God through Jesus Christ. Let us be reminded that non-believers race after the security the world attempts to offer. It shall not be so with us. We seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to us as well. Take joy and put trust in the God of all creation who cares for us. As this day unfolds, watch God care for today’s cares.
The gospel is not something we go to church to hear. The gospel is something we leave church to tell. Let us pray to the Lord of the harvest to use us to equip, prepare and send out workers into his harvest field.
Today is the day of Salvation! Let’s live (witness) like it!
