22 Jesus said to His disciples, “For this reason I tell you, do not worry about your life, as to what you will eat; or about your body, as to what you will wear.23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.24 Consider the ravens, for they neither sow [seed] nor reap [the crop]; they have no storehouse or barn, and yet God feeds them. How much more valuable are you than the birds!25 And which of you by worrying can add one hour to his life’s span?26 So if you are not even able to do a very little thing [such as that], why are you worried about the rest?27 Consider the lilies and wildflowers, how they grow [in the open field]. They neither labor nor spin [wool to make clothing]; yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory and splendor dressed himself like one of these.28 But if this is how God clothes the grass which is in the field today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He clothe you? You of little faith!29 So as for you, do not seek what you will eat and what you will drink; nor have an anxious and unsettled mind.30 For all the [pagan] nations of the world greedily seek these things; and your [heavenly] Father [already] knows that you need them.31 But [strive for and actively] seek His kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.32 Do not be afraid and anxious, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
