Do Not Worry

22And he said to his disciples, Therefore I say to you, Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat; neither for the body, what you shall put on. 23The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment. 24Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them: how much more are you better than the fowls? 25And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? 26If you then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take you thought for the rest? 27Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say to you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith? 29And seek not you what you shall eat, or what you shall drink, neither be you of doubtful mind. 30For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knows that you have need of these things. 31But rather seek you the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added to you. 32Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. 33Sell that you have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that fails not, where no thief approaches, neither moth corrupts. 34For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
