If that is how god clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you - you of little faith?
In today's scripture, Jesus points out to His followers the futility of worrying about such things as what they will eat, drink, or wear. To do so is to place fear over faith, to choose vain human pursuits rather than resting in the promise that God will supply their needs. He assures them that God already knows their needs before they ask and will provide as long as they have their priorities straight: "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." (Matthew 6:30) Those of little faith are those who do not grasp the concept of God's immeasurable and overwhelming love for them. They can't, as the saying goes, let go and let God.
What is holding you back, keeping you a prisoner of "little faith"? Are you hanging onto worries, allowing them to consume you with a false sense of purpose and control in your life? Are you micro-managing your life and the lives of those around you? Stop. Close your eyes. Take a deep breath. Visualize Jesus sitting in front of you. Focus on Him. Ask Him to take away all the things that separate you from the living and loving God. Cast all your cares on the One whose yoke is easy and burden light. Trust fully in the knowledge that, by placing God first in your life, all good things will follow.
